This genuine ancient coin has been mounted in a
modern 18 karat gold pendant.
One of the most fascinating figures of the
Hellenistic Age, Ariarathes played the game of
political intrigue with unusual skill. Through
marriage and treaty, he allied himself with all the
great powers of the time. It is fitting then that
his coinage should be decorated on the reverse
with the image of Athena, goddess of both
wisdom and war. Just like Ariarathes himself, the
person who wears this splendid pendant should
triumph over all of life’s obstacles.
