Object Description

A fine Athenian silver tetradrachm pendant featuring a tetradrachm coin set in a modern silver frame with a loop attached at the top for suspension. The coin depicts the profile head of Athena on its obverse. The Greek goddess is portrayed facing right, wearing a crested Attic helmet ornamented with three laurel leaves and vine scrolls. The reverse displays a stylistically rendered owl standing within an incuse square, facing right with his body, face frontal. The Greek inscription ΑΘΕ (Athe) is written vertically to the bird’s right, whilst an olive springs from the top left corner of the coin. A small crescent fills the field above the bird’s wings.

Date: Circa 5th century BC
