Roman Republic Silver Denarius 119 BC Janus - the God of Beginnings, Change and Endings 14K Gold Pendant 119 BC | Artifact #6682

Roman Republic Silver Denarius 119 BC Pendant with Janus, the God of Beginnings, Change & Endings

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

SEE COIN DETAILS BELOW FOR PENDANT SIZE

Of Special Note: This rare ancient Roman Denarius pictures Janus. The god Janus held a unique position in ancient Roman myth - it is he who presided over change - he was the master of all beginnings, transitions and endings - the master of time. He is depicted with two faces: he looks to the future with the wisdom gained from the past. Janus sparks action and the change that comes with it. For anyone on a journey, Janus can be an inspired companion.

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 M. Furius L. f. Philus in 119 BC. It pictures the Janus on the front (obverse). Janus is the god of beginnings, gates, transitions, time, change, passages and endings. He looks to the future with the wisdom gained from the past. On the back (reverse) is Roma, the personification of the city of Rome, holding wreath and scepter

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.
