    A gold-plated bronze crescent pendant. Delicate detailing, including floral motifs and spirals, surround the red stones that sit in the pendant.

    This necklace is closely modelled on a gold and garnet pendant in the Museum’s collection, dating from c. 200BC-100BC. The original necklace was excavated at Taormina, on the east coast of Sicily, and is from the Greek period.

    Taormina is a small town on the east coast of the island of Sicily, midway between Messina and Catania. It is reputed to have been founded by colonists from the nearby Greek colony of Naxos. The town boasts many ancient ruins, including the ancient Greek theatre, which is one of the most celebrated ruins in Sicily. The original necklace can be seen in the exhibition, Sicily: culture and conquest, or at Collections Online.
