This sterling silver ring showcases an authentic Greek coin dating back to 300 BC, portraying the illustrious Pegasus, the winged horse: on the flip side, the coin displays the bust of the revered Goddess Athena.
Pegasus, known as Πήγασος (Pḗgasos) in Greek and also referred to as such in Latin, is a mythical and divine creature, widely renowned in Greek mythology. Typically depicted in a pristine white hue, Pegasus is the offspring of the Olympian god Poseidon, born from the Gorgon Medusa.
The Greek hero Bellerophon captured Pegasus near the Peirene fountain with the aid of Athena and Poseidon. This alliance allowed Bellerophon to mount Pegasus, enabling them to vanquish the monstrous Chimera and embark on various other heroic exploits. However, Bellerophon met his fate when he fell from the winged horse's back in his attempt to reach Mount Olympus. In response, Zeus transformed Pegasus into the constellation that bears his name.
