Additional Information: This coin is set in an 18 Karat gold pendant.
In their images and inscriptions, ancient coins record the dreams and ambitions of men, the rise and fall of empires, the comings and goings of royalty. Yet beyond this grand public history, each coin has a more intimate, private tale to tell. As we hold such tokens of the past in our hands, we cannot help but wonder who first held them centuries ago. Were they kings or commoners? Where they soldiers, senators, merchants or artists? This is the magic and romance of such an object. In its presence, our imagination flies freely down the corridors of time. To wear this lovely pendant is to touch directly upon the glories of the classical age. - (FJ.3826)
