Many myths and legends describe that gods and goddesses act as overseers and are responsible for maintaining sanity and order among people.
Thus, in ancient Greece, love and beauty were subject to Aphrodite. She was born of sea foam and became the goddess of fertility, eternal spring, and life, the queen of nymphs and graces. Her sanctuaries were full of the scent of fragrant myrrh, roses, fresh young apples, and pomegranates, and the holiday in honor of the goddess was accompanied by wild dances and songs until the morning.
The gilded apple conveys the seductive nature of the goddess, and the incredibly professional work of the master seems to revive the beautiful goddess on a coin in high relief.
