Reproduction of a stater of the 'Pegasi' type, minted in Corinth and her western colonies Leucas and Ambracia during the first quarter of the 5th century BC. The appearance of the silver stater at Corinth was changed towards the end of the 6th century BC by the addition of a head of Athena with Corinthian helmet as a reverse design to join the Pegasus on the obverse.

Pegasus, the mythical winged horse, whose name in Greek means 'strong', was the offspring of Poseidon and Medusa. He is often seen on the coinage of Corinth as he, according to myth, helped the Corinthian hero Bellerophon, to defeat the mighty Chimera.

Handmade for us in Greece, this jewellery collection is inspired by ancient Greek coins, the art and jewellery of the Minoan civilisation, familiar symbolic motifs and images, and the animals that played a significant part in ancient Greek culture. 

These cufflinks are made of sterling silver, hallmarked '925'.
