Description
This Bronze Coin is Set in an 18 Karat Gold Necklace

Gordian III was the grandson of Gordian I and the nephew of Gordian II; both of whom were emperors for a brief period. During the turbulent 3rd. Century, Gordian III was saluted emperor at the ripe age of 13. He was guided by the praetorian prefect Timesitheus, who in the company of the emperor, set off for a campaign against the Persians (242). After initial successes the loyalty of the troops was undermined by treachery and Gordian was deposed. This ended a reign of the Gordians who were intelligent and literate men much needed in a brutal age. This very handsome coin shows a youthful ruler crowned with a laurel wreath, surrounded by the legend IMP.GORDIANVS PIVS FEL. AVG., indicating the coin was minted while he was Augustus. On the reverse is Security standing left holding scepter and leaning on a column. The letters SC show the minting was approved by the Senate of Rome. The bold beauty of this necklace brings the most glorious aspects of the Roman world into the modern age, destined for someone with the style and individuality of royalty.
