Authentic Roman Silver Coin Pendant depicting Honos and Virtus

  • • Handmade 100% Made in Italy • Authentic Roman Silver Coin 1st cent. BC • Band material: Sterling Silver 925

This sterling silver pendant was designed by me and handmade by the craftsmen of my shop, SERRA, opened in Rome in 1910 and located in via Margutta 57 , in the historic center of the city, very close to the Spanish Steps! In the center of the pendant , there is an authentic Roman coin ( 70 B.C . ) depicting the customization of Honos and Virtus. There was a temple in Regio I of ancient Rome dedicated to Virtus and Honos. No remains survive. It is the first entry for Regio I in the regional catalogues and was sited just outside the porta Capena,probably on the northern side of the via Appia. In front of it was the Ara Fortuna Redux. In the reverse side of the coin there are Rome and Italy hand in hand. All of our jewels are certified by certificate of authenticity attesting their Greek or Roman origin !
