This stunning coin necklace adorns the Roman head of the Gorgon. Medusa is a well-known monster in Greek and Roman mythology, easily recognizable for her hair of snakes and her ability to turn all those who gaze upon her into stone. Medusa was extremely beautiful once and even caught the attention of the Sea god, Poseidon. Her and Poseidon chose to develop their romance and passion within the temple of Athena, the goddess of wisdom and warfare. Athena turned Medusa into a vicious monster as retribution for her romance with Poseidon in the temple. Medusa’s head is still seen today as a symbol of protection, a ward against evil and negativity and the symbol of heroes and strength. To adorn this mythical creature on these ancient rare coins illustrates the importance of being strong, positive and powerful.
