  • Struck by King Antiochos VII over 2,000 years ago!

  • Features the portrait of Eros, the Greek god of love, on the obverse and either the headdress of Isis or the victory goddess Nike on the reverse, with a unique 'desert patina.'

Step back over 2,000 years with the Eros Love Coin Album, featuring an exquisite ancient Greek coin struck by King Antiochos VII, who reigned in the second century BC. This remarkable bronze coin captures the enduring charm of Eros, the Greek god of love, better known in popular culture by his Roman name, Cupid.

On the obverse side of the coin, you'll find a beautifully detailed portrait of Eros, embodying the god's eternal allure and mythological significance. The reverse showcases either the headdress of Isis, the revered Egyptian goddess, or the victory goddess Nike, adding a layer of rich historical and cultural context to this ancient artifact.

One of the standout features of this coin is its 'desert patina,' a unique and natural surface oxidation that gives it a distinctive, time-worn appearance, highlighting its journey through the ages.

Eros, according to the ancient poet Hesiod (circa 700 BC), was the fourth god created, following Chaos, Gaia, and Tartarus. The playwright Aristophanes offers a different origin story, describing Eros as hatching from an egg laid by Night. However, most mythological texts, recount that Eros is the son of Aphrodite and Ares, known for shooting his arrow of love into the hearts of unsuspecting humans. The tale of his love affair with Psyche is a timeless narrative of passion and intrigue.

The Eros Love Coin Album not only offers a tangible connection to ancient mythology but also serves as a beautiful piece of history for collectors and enthusiasts alike. Whether you're captivated by ancient Greek lore, fascinated by numismatics, or simply appreciate the artistry of ancient coins, this album is a perfect addition to your collection!
