The inscription reads ΑΘΕ, a monogram attributed to the goddess Athena (ΑΘΗΝΑ), the virgin goddess of wisdom, who was also the protectress of the city of Athens. Head of Athena right, wearing round earring and crested Attic helmet ornamented with three olive leaves above visor and spiral palmette on bowl. Almond shaped almond eye as in archaic depictions of the goddess.

This is the largest, heaviest and possibly the most impressive version of the Athena tetradrachm coin as a pendant in our collection.

Comments: A heavy piece with impressively solid craftsmanship and fine finish.
