Description
This genuine ancient coin has been mounted in a modern 18 karat gold ring. Every ancient coin reflects two kinds of history. The more public record of events--of politics, economics, beliefs--appear in the iconography, the images that adorn its surface. On this lovely silver coin, we see the legendary nymph Larissa, patroness of the Thessalian city, and a horse, a famous product of the region. The more intimate history--who held it and what it purchased--is more subtle in its expression. Yet, to hold this lovely token of the classical past is to communicate directly with that vanished world, and with the men and women who made it great. - (FJ.7153)
