According to Greek legend, 2,200 years ago a young boy named Taras was injured in a shipwreck, thrown into the ocean and was drowning. The boy's father, Poseidon, god of the sea, realized his son was in danger and sent a dolphin to rescue him. Riding on the dolphin's back, he was taken to a protective harbor that was named Taras in his honor. The reverse side of the coin portrays a naked youth on horseback. This stunning sterling silver necklace is an exact replica of the original coin used between 300 and 225 BC.
