SPQR Pewter Roman Pendant Necklace
SPQR Pendant Necklace. Re-live the days of the Roman Empire with Ancient Rome Gifts and Jewelry!
In Ancient Rome, Emperors, victorious soldiers, and athletes wore wreaths made from the leave of laurel trees. They were worn on the head as an emblem of victory or by Emperors instead of a crown.
The Roman army would carry standards and emblems of each legion. Standards were decorated with gold eagles, laurel wreaths, astrological birth signs and banners called vexilla. They were symbols of the honour and bravery of the legion and were to be protected at all costs.
The initials SPQR (Senatus Populusque Romanus), meaning "the Senate and People of Rome" were put on buildings, army standards and coins. It was the mark of the Roman Empire that can still be seen today on buildings in Rome.
1 1/2" pewter SPQR pendant on leather lacing.
