From the Ganymede Jewelry. The pieces the make up this group are said to have been found together in Macedonia, neat Thessaloniki, before 1913.
The earrings hang a three-dimensional figure of the Trojan prince Ganymede in the clutches of Zeus, who has assumed the guise of an eagle. Coveted by Zeus for his beauty, Ganymede was carried off to Mount Olympos to be a cupbearer for the gods.
