Nestled at the center of this sterling silver ring rests an authentic Roman coin from 70 B.C., adorned with the exquisite portrayal of Honos and Virtus.

In the annals of ancient Rome's Region I, a storied temple once venerated these revered entities, yet no tangible vestiges of this sacred site endure through time. This temple marked the inaugural entry in Region I's historical catalog, believed to have stood just beyond the porta Capena, likely positioned along the northern stretch of the via Appia, although no tangible remnants persist to validate its precise location. Adjoining this elusive temple stood the esteemed Ara Fortuna Redux, adding to the historical significance of the area.

On the reverse side of this intriguing coin, an iconic image emerges: Rome and Italy depicted hand in hand, symbolizing unity and solidarity. This depiction stands as a testament to the profound cultural and societal values held within the ancient Roman civilization, showcasing the interconnectedness between the city of Rome and the broader Italian landscape.
