Lion - Courage, Strength & Regality
The lion is a symbol of courage, strength and regality.
The Ancient Greek sterling silver lion coin replica is adorned with either a white sapphire or green Tsavorite garnet (2.5mm) set in gold and 18k gold balls and bail. 18" sterling silver, long and short chain.
Cast from an original, which I own. The original dates from 305-290 BC from Ancient Greece, city of Velia in Lucania, which is now Southern Italy. Silver Drachma. A beautiful example depicting a walking lion on one side and Athena wearing a winged crested helmet on the other.
