It is no wonder that the ancients were enthralled with the imagery of lions, nor that they chose to add them to their coinage as signs of the might of their civilisations. The citizens of these bygone civilisations had ancestors who could remember a time in which lions and humans competed for the same prey, and the same shelter. The power of these animal kings was intimately understood by human beings, and as such became a popular motif for the local currency. The Greek Lion pendant depicts the beast rearing dynamically backwards to look over its shoulder at the glowing sapphire sun.
