(Private Listing per Maria Sole) Genuine Ancient Greek coin 18 Kt Gold Ring depicting Goddess Venus
This exquisite 18 Kt gold ring features an ancient Greek coin dating back to the years 420-390 B.C. Embedded within it is an authentic obol, a currency of the time. The coin bears the image of Aphrodite, known as Venus to the Romans, who held a prominent role in Greek mythology as the goddess of beauty, love, sex, fertility, prosperity, and victory. In the reverse side of the coin, you can observe the barbed head of Dionysus, another significant figure from Greek mythology.
According to the myths surrounding Venus-Aphrodite, she emerged from the sea foam, symbolized by the Greek word "aphros." In Roman theology, Venus is depicted as the gentle, fluid feminine force, crucial for the creation and harmony of life. In contrast, her male counterparts in the Roman pantheon, Vulcan and Mars, embody active and fiery characteristics. Venus gracefully absorbs and moderates the masculine essence, harmoniously uniting the opposing aspects of male and female through mutual affection. She possesses an assimilative and benevolent nature, encompassing various disparate roles.
The goddess Venus bestows a range of blessings upon her devotees. She can grant military triumph, facilitate amorous conquests, bring good fortune, and ensure prosperity in all endeavors. With her all-encompassing nature, she embodies the essence of balance and affection, wielding her power to unite and bring forth positive outcomes in different facets of life.
