Ancient Greek Coin Apollo and horse and rider

Weight: 6.7 grams: size: 15 x 17 mm, 5 mm thick. nice coin for jewelry.

Most Greek coins were manufactured by striking two dies together which transferred the designs to a metal. For this reason the coins were often irregularly shaped. In these coins mostly Greek Gods are on the front of the coin (Apollo, Hercules, etc.), on the reverse you will find horse and rider, bow and sheath, eagle, and other deities and more. Date is unknown. This coin will make a nice pendant or ring. Guaranteed authentic. I electronically cleaned the coin to remove the 2000 year old dirt to make them presentable for jewelry.

Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto. He is the god of light and the sun, truth and prophecy; medicine, healing, and plague; music, poetry, and the arts; and much more. The horse on the front of this Greek coin is a commemorative of the races King Philip II won. King Philip II was an Olympic champion three times. In the 106th Olympics, in 356 BCE, he won the race, riding his horse. In the 107th Olympics, in 352 BCE, he won the four-horse chariot race. In the 108th Olympics, in 348 BCE, he was also the winner of the two colt chariot race.
