I have always been fascinated by greek mythology. The stories are so beaitiful and romantic. The gods and goddesses take on such human traits, yet are unobtainable and unreachable.
According to ancient Greek mythology, Athena was the daughter of Zeus and his first wife, Metis, whose name meant "wisdom." Metis warned Zeus that their first son would be more powerful than Zeus himself, which agitated Zeus so much that when Metis became pregnant he swallowed whole Metis and their unborn child. This gave him a headache, which he cured by splitting his head open with an axe. (Zeus may have been powerful but he wasn't necessarily smart.) From the wound came forth Athena, fully grown
The owl is Athena's attribute or mascot. According to the mythology, Athena at times also took the very form of her owl
This unique and bold ring features an ancient coin that many consider to be "the ancient coin". It is an ancient Greek silver tetradrachm struck 393-300 . The coin shows Athenas owl- , and the three Greek letters AOE on the other side- which was the symbol for Athens.
This coin is in excellent condition- 100% authentic. This particular coin was found around the area of Jerusalem . All of my coins are purchased from very reliable and trustworthy sources, and this ring will come with a certificate of autnenticity
It is almost 2400 years old!! The coin itself is quite heavy and thick- it weighs in at 17.4 grams of solid silver. The cuts in the owl are in the majority of all the Athenian coins- it was a test of metal purity done thousands of years ago -it is in almost 9o percent of these coins..
This gorgeous coin sits majestically wrapped in thick fine silver, clinging to its contours with a small border around its base. The band is 1 cm wide of thick sterling with another sterling overlay of a classical Greek pattern to go with the feel of the coin.
This is a large and statement making ring- nice and weighty but quite comfortable on.
It was light oxidized and then tumbled for strength and shine
This ring is a 7, but size can be altered
This comes in a beautiful gift box (even if it is just for you) and FREE EXPRESS SHIPPING.
A phenomonal piece of history.
