An ancient Greek Hellenistic hollow gold pendant, finely modelled in the shape of a miniature amphora. The pendant stands on a flat, out-splayed foot from which its small waisted body raises, featuring two S-shaped handles enriched by gold granules. To the top, the piece presents a tubular suspension loop, embellished with gold granules at each side. The pendant might have originally being part of an earring: earrings with amphorae pendants have been largely recovered from Greek and roman territories.
Date: Circa 4th-3rd Century BC
