Roman Glass Token / Pendant of a Griffin, ca. 2nd - 3rd Century CE. Intact and in excellent condition. 1" diameter. Height on custom stand is 3 1/4". Ex: Teddy Kollek, First Mayor of a Unified Jerusalem. Griffin is a legendary creature with the body, tail and back legs of a lion, the head and wings of an eagle and an eagle's talons as its front feet. Because the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle the king of birds, the griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature.
