Medusa Genuine Greek Silver Coin 4th century BC sterling silver pendant
This sterling silver pendant features a genuine Greek silver coin from the 4th century AD portraying Medusa, the most famous Gorgon.
The Gorgons, in Greek mythology, were monstrous creatures with snakes for hair and the power to petrify anyone who met their gaze. Medusa, the most famous Gorgon, was slain by Perseus. The severed head of Medusa, which retained its petrifying power, was often used as a protective symbol.
These mythological figures were believed to ward off evil and safeguard against malevolent forces. Consequently, their images were frequently employed on shields, coins, and architectural elements to serve as a form of talisman or defense against harm. This pendant, showcasing a genuine ancient Greek coin featuring a Gorgon, reflects this belief in their protective properties and links to the rich tapestry of Greek mythology.
