Ancient Greek 5th Century BC Griffin Coin Diamonds 18K Gold Pendant

About the Item

A griffin with foreleg raised proudly is depicted on this authentic silver "tetrobol" coin from the ancient Greek colony of Abdera (on the shores of Northern Greece) that was struck between 415-395 BC. Abdera was a flourishing seaport in ancient times, and chose the griffin as the totem symbol of their city. The griffin was a mythological creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle, often thought to be the guardian of treasures. The coin, which features a bull head on the reverse, is set within a Steven Battelle designed handmade 18K gold setting surrounded by four 1.8 mm VS1 diamonds. This small treasure (note size comparison with dime) comes with a laminated coin certificate of authenticity. 20 inch 18K woven triple Spiga chain shown is not included, but can be ordered additionally. We discount our chains 20% when ordered with a pendant.
