Large Macedonia Star/Sun/Starburst Coin Pendant with Greek Key Pattern / Meander
 

The Macedonian 'sun' or 'star' (has also been described as a 'starburst' by historians) was found embossed on the solid gold larnax in the burial tomb of Philip II of Macedon (father of Alexander the Great) outside the town of Vergina in Northern Greece. The sun which remains today a well known Greek symbol was an emblem of the mighty Macedonian dynasty and possibly a religious symbol at the time of Alexander the Great. The excavations in Vergina constitute a sensational archaeological site, while the larnaca itself is today kept in a museum very close by.
