This genuine ancient coin has been mounted in a modern 18 karat gold necklace.

In their court at Antioch, the Seleucid kings lived surrounded by wealth and luxury. This necklace is very much in that tradition. Famous as both a center of learning and pleasure, Antioch was one of the great cities of the ancient world. This superb coin, bearing the portrait of one of the more fascinating Seleucid monarchs, evokes the splendor of that world at its height. On the reverse is the image of Athena, classical goddess of wisdom and war. This splendid coin is set in a necklace of timeless gold whose beauty is at once classical in spirit and contemporary in style. The individual who wears it today is certain to benefit from the blessings of the goddess, enjoying both wisdom in making the right choice and triumph in wearing it. - (FJ.4510)
