This sterling silver pendant features an authentic Roman coin from 146 BC, minted by Caius Antestius Labeo, with the Victory in a biga on the reverse side. In ancient Roman religion, the Goddess Roma was a strikingly beautiful deity symbolizing the city of Rome and the Roman state. She was depicted in various forms, including coins, sculptures, and architectural drawings. Despite influences from other goddesses like Athena, Roma emerged as a unique symbol of Rome.

As an archetype, the Goddess Roma represents the ideal of rational women, guided by both intellect and emotion, capable of maintaining control in difficult situations by developing effective strategies. This archetype encourages women to manage events carefully, consider the consequences, and adjust actions when necessary to achieve the best outcomes. In Roman art and coinage, she is typically depicted with a helmet and military equipment.

The Goddess Roma had a dedicated cult with an exclusively male priesthood, highlighting her significance in Roman political and religious life.
