Description
This gorgeous coin is set in an 18-karat gold pendant. If we think about objects we carry with us and handle everyday—coins, keys, jewelry—we realize that something of our personal energy passes into these items: we become part of their history even if only for a brief moment. When the empire of Rome was at its height, citizens—men and women, highborn and low—used this sestertius and passed it along. It has survived into our era and grown lovelier with time; when we wear it in its dazzling frame of gold we are connected directly to Antiquity. - (FJ.2395)
