"Victorem" is the accusative situation of the 3rd declension noun"victor". Usage of a noun in the accusative case, along with thepronoun "ad ", means "to" in the sense of travel - eg "Ambulaviad victorem" way "I walked come the victor". The building (ad +accusative noun) does NOT mean "to" in the sense of giving. Forthat you need the datil case, with no preposition. The dative of"victor" is "victori".

The word "spolias" does not, and also never walk exist. The ending"-as" is first declension accusation plural, however the Latin word"spolium" (booty) is second declension neuter. The word "spolium" wasusually supplied in the plural, and also the many of "spolium", in boththe nominative and accusative cases, is "spolia".

"To the victor, the spoils" is hence "victori spolia"
