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.
Coin pendant is 1" in diameter.
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.
I would suggest adding a small metal circlet to attach the medallion to the necklace. That way it lays flat on your chest and can always face forward. Other than that, love the product.
Got this because its my husbands favorite saying. He absolutely loved it. Also loved the little origami boat that was included. Such attention to detail and personalization is rare with companies. Will definitely buy more from you guys!
