Giddy Up!

SKU: Oak2022524


This copy of an ancient Greek coin features the nymph Arethusa on one side surrounded by dolphins and the goddess Nike riding a chariot on the reverse. A popular Sicilian myth is that Arethusa was so beautiful no man could resist her. Some crazed god Alpheus turned into a river so he could be close to her body bathing in the same said river. Arethusa prayed to Dianna to help her escape so she was turned into a spring far far away. Nike is the goddess of victory in art, athletics, and music. Both on the same coin? Hmm makes one wonder if Nike didn't toss the distraught Arethusa into the back of her chariot and help her escape. Giddy Up ladies! No matter what the reason the coin was cast in the city of Syracuse  400 BC this reversible coin pendant is lovely.
