Poseiden Mounted Silver Pendant
This silver pendant is modeled on an ancient Greek coin which features Poseiden sitting astride a horse. In Greek mythology, Poseiden was the god of the sea, storms, earthquakes, and horses. He is often depicted riding in a water-borne chariot pulled by hippocampi, creatures that are half horse and half fish. His connection to the sea is more familiar to most people than his connection to horses. The Greeks believed he created the first horse and he was the father of many more. His most famous offspring is the winged horse Pegasus. If you want to order a chain to go with this piece, select from the options below or go to our Sterling Silver Chains section for more variety.
