This genuine ancient coin from the city of
Syracuse has been mounted in a modern 18
karat gold ring.
The ancient trading city of Syracuse was famous
for its beauty and luxurious style of living. This
splendid coin captures the spirit of power and
pride that made Syracuse a fabled place. It
depicts the head of Zeus Hellanios on one side,
and the sacred eagle of the god on the other. To
wear this token of Syracuse's greatness in its
frame of radiant gold is to touch directly the
glory of the classical past.
