  • • Handmade 100% Made in Italy • Authentic Greek Silver Coin 3rd cent. BC • Band material: Sterling Silver 925

This sterling silver pendant showcases an authentic Greek coin from 300 BC, featuring the mythical creature Pegasus, the winged horse, on one side, and the bust of the Goddess Athena on the other. Pegasus is a well-known figure in Greek mythology and is typically depicted as a pure white, winged divine horse. The offspring of the Olympian god Poseidon and the Gorgon Medusa, Pegasus was caught by the hero Bellerophon with the help of Athena and Poseidon near the fountain Peirene.

Bellerophon rode Pegasus to vanquish the monstrous Chimera and embarked on numerous other exploits before falling off the winged horse's back in an attempt to reach Mount Olympus. As a tribute, Zeus transformed Pegasus into the eponymous constellation, immortalizing the mythical creature in the stars.
