Calabria Tarentum

SKU: Oak20215


This Ancient Greek coin estimated circa 333 A.D. is set in a sterling silver bezel so that you can see the obverse side ( the side with the head) and the reverse side.

Our research determined that the head facing right may be that of Persephone; Queen of the underworld and Goddess of spring. She is wearing a stephanos or wreathe crown. She is also wearing a triple earring - our kind of woman! The words TAPA are to the right. There is a dolphin under her chin. On the reverse is a nude warrior on horseback, holding a spear and a shield on left arm. Probably running from her!

The material of the coin could be coin silver or bronze. It is hard to determine as they minted them in both metals.

  • sterling silver bezel set Greek coin 21mm diameter
  • 30mm total length including bezel
