An authentic ancient Roman coin from the 4th century AD hangs from the bottom. The bezel and bail was handcrafted around the coin and made specifically to the size and shape of the coin. This coin was issued by Claudius II (Gothicus), roman emperor for a 2 year period between 268-270 AD.

History:

Marcus Aurelius Valerius Claudius Gothicus II was most likely from Upper Moesia. In 268 AD, Claudius joined the legions of Gallienus serving as one of several generals. Claudius then turned his attentions toward the Alamanni invasion and Goths along the Danube frontiers and in the Balkans. Through a series of impressive victories, Claudius crushed the barbarian invaders earning him the title of Gothicus.

Still, the barbarians continued their relentless pressure upon the Roman frontier. In 270 AD, it was the Juthungi who now crossed the Danube. General Aurelian was placed in charge finishing off the Goths while Claudius marched to Sirmium, where he became ill with the plague and died.

Claudius’ reputation as defender against the Goths led to him being remebered for decades to come. Constantine the Great claimed that Claudius was a member of his family. Claudius II was one of the few emperors of the 3rd century to be held in high regard for several generations that followed.
