    Roman Republic Silver Denarius 137 BC Pendant with Roma & the She Wolf Suckling Remus and Romulus

    Please Note: This is an authentic Ancient Roman Treasure Coin, and you will receive the exact pendant in the photographs and description.

    Before the Roman Empire, there was the Roman Republic… where ancient Rome was ruled by the powerful Senate and moneyers were responsible for creating the coins used by the citizens of this rising power.

    This silver coin, a Denaruis, was minted by moneyer Sex. Pompeius Fostlus in 137 BC in Rome. It pictures the helmeted Roma on the front (obverse). Roma was the personification – the representation of the city of Rome, where this coin was minted. On the back (reverse) is the She Wolf suckling Remus and Romulus with the shepherd Faustulus and birds on a fig tree behind. 

    Our ancient coin pendants are a favorite of history fans, students, travel buffs and teachers… and anyone with a love of the past. Our Roman jewelry is designed to be worn by men or women will accommodate both large and small chain and leather necklaces.

    April's Notes: This denarius has wonderful detail - with Roma's winged helmet clear and strong and a particularly pleasing portrait. And to add to the celebration of Ancient Rome is the reverse of this coin featuring the She Wolf and twins Remus and Romulus - one of the most legendary symbols of ancient Rome. This symbol tells the origin story of Rome itself, with the twins being abandoned near a river bank as infants to avoid the king who wanted them dead, then saved by the river god and cared for by the She Wolf. Raised to adulthood by the shepherd Faustulus, they eventually regained power. Unable to agree on which hill Rome should be founded on, Romulus killed Remus, thus leading to the founding of Rome, which took its name from its mythological founder.

    Each ancient Roman coin was hand-struck by three people, and at the height of the Roman empire, coins were minted throughout the sprawling territories – even in military camps where coins were minted to pay soldiers. Lost or purposely hoarded, this ancient Roman Coin was discovered by metal detector and professionally conserved for a lifetime of enjoyment.
