This hammered sterling silver pendant holds an authentic ancient Greek bronze coin minted in a city called Maroneia in the 2nd century B.C. Maroneia, an ancient Greek city in Thrace was a seaport on the north coast of the Aegean Sea. Maroneia was named after Maron, a priest of Apollo who encountered Ulysses in the Odyssey. Thrace was a very rich province, known for its fine wines and well-bred horses. Travelers by sea from all over the Mediterranean stopped at its port to buy wine and horses and silver and gold from the mines in the Thracian mountains. The image on the obverse of the coin depicts Dyonisus wearing an iconic ivy wreath, with an image of Herakles on the reverse with bunch of grapes in his hand and the inscription "Maroneia" in Greek to his right.
