This genuine ancient coin has been mounted in a modern 18 karat gold ring.

The magnificent city of Rhodes, situated on the northern portion of the island of the same name, was an extremely prosperous city in the third century B.C. in fact; it became one of the principal trading centers of the ancient world, exercising much political influence through the strength of its maritime fleet. This magnificent silver coin evidences the wealth and prosperity of Ancient Rhodes. On one side the radiant face of the god hellos is featured. This actively mobile deity, roused daily by the crowing of the cock, drove the ancient sun across the heavens with his four-horse chariot. At night he would sail home along the ocean stream, which flows around the world, embarking his chariot and team on a golden ferryboat. The reverse side of the coin depicts a beautiful, multi-pedaled rose with a stemmed rose bud to the right. Imagery befitting a once-splendid city adorns this silver coin, at once captivating our imagination and drawing us like a siren to this ancient and memorable city by the sea. - (FJ.5723)
