Apollo: Greek God of the Sun with one of his attributes the Lyre. (398 - 395 B.C.) (23mm- 7 g)
OBVERSE: Laureate Head of Apollo facing right.
REVERSE: Greek Letters Surrounding kithara (Lyre)
This coin depicts Apollo, the Greek god of the Sun, wisdom, prophecy, music, and medicine on the obverse. Considered "the most Greek of all gods," Apollo is often shown playing the stringed musical instrument, the lyre. His playing delighted the other gods on Olympus, making them forget all else. So it`s appropriate that a lyre is shown on the reverse. Apollo’s symbols or attributes are the sun, the lyre, the bow, and the chariot he drives the sky daily. He was creative, handsome, and supportive of all the arts. Apollo was the son of the supreme god Zeus and Leto a nymph. He, like his father Zeus, frequently enjoyed the charms of nymphs. His twin sister was Artemis. Apollo also is associated with the cure of diseases. His most famous children were the semi—divine singer Orpheus and Asklepios, the god of healing.

BAIL & PENDANT JUMP RING: Silver Plated Brass
