    Roman Republic Silver Denarius circa 111 BC Necklace with Mars, the God of War

    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 Gnaeus Cornelius Blasio between 112 - 111 BC in Rome. It pictures the helmeted head of Mars (see April's Notes) on the front (obverse). Mars was the god of war and the guardian of agriculture. On the back (reverse) is Jupiter (the master god and the god of sky and thunder) holding scepter and thunderbolt with Juno (the queen of the gods and special protector of Rome) on the left and Minerva (goddess of wisdom and strategic warfare, justice, law, victory, the arts, trade, and strategy) on the right with ROMA underneath

    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: While the image on the obverse of this coins is widely held to be Mars, researchers have also theorized that it is indeed the portrait of Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus - the famous Roman General who was the hero of the Second Punic War... defeating even Hannibal. The god and goddesses on the reverse of this coin refer to the statues in the temple of Jupiter in Rome... a temple that contained a statue of Scipio as well, in recognition of his close association with the gods during his lifetime.

    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.
