Roman Bronze Aphrodite Pendant

An ancient Roman small bronze statuette of Aphrodite Anadyomene, the goddess standing with her drapery falling around her hip, she wrings out her locks of hair in each hand, set in a modern gold pendant between two columns.

Ca. 1st - 3rd century AD.
Height of figure: 1 1/4 in. (3.2 cm).

Aphrodite was the Greek goddess of sexual love and beauty. She was also known as Cypris and Cytherea after the two islands, Cyprus and Cythera, where she was said to have originated. The Anadyomene (rising) type is one of the most popular representations of Aphrodite, as according to Greek mythology the goddess was born from the foam of the sea. Hephaestus was her husband, the child Eros her companion, and Ares one of her lovers.

Formerly in the collection of Armen Sarkisian, acquired in Egypt in the 1950s.
