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

Some time around 379 B.C. The region of Boeotia, northwest of Athens, grew radically in strength and obtained an influence throughout Greece, second to none in the entire Greek state. A new federal Boeotian currency w as put into circulation about this time which lasted down to the Macedonian conquest of Greece in 338 B.C. This silver stater is a remarkable example of the coinage minted during this period. On one side we see the beautiful image of an amphora, above which stands a cluster of grapes. Flanking the amphora is the name of one of the Boeotian magistrates, in abbreviated form, specially appointed to superintend the finances of the mint. The reverse side of the coin features a Boeotian shield. Mounted in its radiant gold ring setting, this extraordinary legacy of the Greek world is a work of art that is truly timeless in its ability to arouse the imagination and please the senses. - (FJ.5331)
