English: Ritual trampling (also known by its Latin name calcatio colli or the Greek term trachelismos) is an ancient ritual, common in triumphal art and ceremonial, denoting the utter submission of a vanquished enemy. The defeated enemy prostrates himself or lies on the ground before the victorious rule, who symbolically steps on the former's neck (collis, trachelos)
