Extremely detailed Cameo Pin of Athena in all her glory. 14 K Gold tested with Nikon tester. 11.1 grams weight. Featured on her helmet, a tiny horse for in mythology she is credited with taming the first horse.She wears the Aegis shield of goatskin to which the head of Gordon Medusa was attached to fight her enemies (I love this little face on her shield.) Athena was, besides being a warrior, the goddess of good counsel, prudent restraint and practical insight. I love the rich detail esp her jewelry and talismans. 1 3/4 inches high, with a filigree boarder that consists of little gold spheres and a narrow rope border. Very good vintage condition, no chips or issues, other than metal color oxidation on the back. I only cleaned with a soft brush and water.
