Helios, the god and personification of the Sun in ancient Greek religion and myth, shines through this pendant. Often portrayed with a radiant crown and guiding a celestial chariot, Helios was revered as a guardian of oaths and the patron of sight.
While initially a lesser deity in Classical Greece, Helios gained prominence during late antiquity by being associated with prominent solar divinities such as Apollo and Sol in Roman mythology. The Roman Emperor Julian even placed Helios at the forefront of his short-lived revival of traditional Roman religious practices in the 4th century AD.
