  • • Handmade 100% Made in Italy • Authentic Greek Bronze Coin 5th cent. BC • Band material: Sterling Silver 925

This sterling silver pendant has been set with an authentic Magna Graecia coin from Tetras, the current Gela in Sicily, minted between 420 and 405 BC. (5th century BC), depicting a Bull. On the reverse of the coin we could see the image of a river god. River gods were often represented in Greek and Roman coins; cities were often founded in the vicinity of a river, as the water was indispensable. The bull, par excellence, represented, and still represents today, physical strength: this representation undoubtedly gave an immediate and easily understandable message: our city, or our Kingdom, is the strongest and must be feared.
