A stunning 14K gold pendant necklace with an authentic ancient Greek coin and a small diamond. The ancient silver coin comes from the Greek city of Histiaia, named after the nymph Histiaia, the city's goddess, and this coin bears her image. Histiaia may imply the origins of the word ‘hysteria’, as everywhere she went, people would laugh, dance and have fun. She was a Maenad, a special type of nymph, companions of Dionysus and celebrated for their infamous orgiastic debaucheries, ecstatic singing and dancing. The vine-wreath on this coin recalls their drunken revelry, while the reverse refers to the naval prowess of the city.
Chain is gold-plated sterling silver. Measurements: Pendant diameter-18 mm. Chain length-16" plus extension of 2". Item #103
