Greek Cherronesos Lion Coin Ring 400-350 BC (134)
Small ancient silver coin with an elegant lion, turning to look back over its shoulder, following the curved line of the coin. The coin shows a great deal of detail of the lion's mane and face especially considering it is almost 2500 years old.
This archaic coin has an incuse, stamped, square on the back instead of a deity, as was common in later coinage.
Dated: 400-350 BC
18kt gold mount with .21ct diamonds.
One of a kind coin with Certificate of Authenticity.
