 ANCIENT ROMAN REPUBLIC DIANA SILVER DENARIUS COIN PENDANT

IN 14K YELLOW GOLD

1ST CENTURY B.C.

With its beautiful and serene depiction of Diana, this coin from the Roman Republic represents the "golden years" of Roman art style and splendor.  Her long flowing hair is shown being worn raised in formal poise.  The reverse side (not shown) shows a quadriga four horse chariot being driven by the goddess Victory.  The rich luster of the silver coin contrasts well with the simple high polished 14 karat yellow gold setting and makes for a very classy as well as highly unique piece of jewelry.

The ancient Roman goddess Diana is the equivalent of the Greek goddess Artemis.  Diana is a moon goddess and is the mother of wild animals and forests.  Oak groves are especially sacred to her.  She is praised for her strength, athletic grace, beauty and her hunting skills and is sometimes referred to as the 'goddess of the hunt'.  She made up a trinity with the two other Roman deities, Egeria the water nymph (Diana's servant and assistant midwife), and Virbius, the woodland god.

This coin is classic ancient Rome and is a superb example of ancient Roman art.  Archaeologists have learned much about ancient Roman dress and hair styles from beautiful coins such as this one.  Exceptional presence and aesthetics!

Overall diameter is the size of a U.S. dime.
