Aphrodite and Pegasus rotating coin ring

Choose between the goddess of love, beauty, and sexual attraction, or the mythical horse Pegasus, on this lovely rotating coin ring.

 

The coin is replica of the Corinthian silver drachm, which showed Aphrodite on its reverse, rather than the helmeted Athena found on Corinthian silver staters.

 

That Aphrodite was depicted on the coin suggests the goddess had a close association with, and importance to, the city of Corinth. Alongside Kythera and Kypros, Aphrodite's principal cult centre was at Corinth. Ancient writers record that her temple was filled with more than a thousand female servants, sacred to the goddess, who used to draw many male visitors to the city!
