MOLON LABE "Come And Take It" - Double Stamped Brass Coin Necklace
Part of our 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 phrase is the romanized (Latin) version of the ancient Greek μολὼν λαβέ, and 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 and seize his troops' weapons. 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.
Coin pendant is 1" in diameter.
If you are unsure about which chain length to order, please read our suggestions on the FAQ page.
Please note: All our brass pendants are raw brass, meaning they are not electroplated and will develop a beautiful patina over time. We recommend polishing it with a soft cloth to help keep your pendant's original shine if you prefer the bright metal look.
All of our customers are part of our crew, and we take care of our own. If you have any issues with your order, we will do everything we can to fix the problem.

Purchased this and another necklace, both of which had the weight and consistency of something I'd expected to have purchased in a truck stop kids toys dispenser...cool style and concept - just felt for the $32 price tag it should have felt heavier.
Absolutely exactly what I wanted I love it
5 Star, will definitely order more in the future.
