MOLON LABE "Come And Take It" - Double Stamped Brass Coin Necklace
Part of our new Captain’s Script coin collection.
Hand-crafted from start to finish, this stamped coin features the Latin phrase MOLON LABE, which means "Come and take it.”
This Latin phrase was cemented into history when King Leonidas, king of the Spartans, was told to lay down his weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae by Xerxes the Great, king of kings of the Persian Empire, when Xerxes arrived to conquer Greece. King Leonidas famously responded, “Come and take them.” (This is the same battle that served as inspiration for the movie "300”.)
Reverse stamped with olive branches on either side of the text.
Please note: All our brass pendants are raw brass, meaning they are not electroplated and will develop a beautiful patina over time. We include a jewelry cloth with every order to help keep your pendant's original shine if you choose to do so.
Excellent. Product was as advertised. Quick shipping. Would order from Maritime Supply again.
