Olympia Coin Figaro Chain Necklace

A beautiful ancient coin replica cast in bronze.

The obverse side features an Eagle with the wings spread, grasping a hare.

The reverse depicts a Thunderbolt, with wings above and volutes below.

One can see letters right and left Ϝ Α (digamma-alfa, first two letters of Elis in local dialect: ϜΑΛΙΣ, walis).

Elis or Ilia (Greek: Ηλεία, Ileia)

The engraver who cut the dies for this piece was justly proud of them, and  added his signature CE.

Having looked it up a little bit, i think  it is dated somewhere between 432-421 b.c

It has been solidly mounted in a sterling silver setting in a way that one can wear it both sides.

The handmade bail of the pendant has a mechanical movement and is suspended by a Lobster swivel clasp made in solid silver , that

gives  the piece a contemporary touch .

You can wear it either alone or paired with long or short length chain necklaces for an even bolder look.

Polished it to a beautiful burnished finish.

Pendant length from bail to end: approx. 4.5 cm

Pendant width (widest part): 1.9 cm

The chain length can be altered upon request.

This necklace is made to order.

Please allow 2-3 weeks to make.

Made from start to finish in our studio in Athens.
