80-51 BC – PTOLEMY XII of Egypt, the Father of Cleopatra VII. This is an extremely fine example of the large silver coinage of Ptolemy XII of Egypt, beautifully mounted as a pendant in a custom 14k gold setting. The mounting on the front, framing the portrait head of Ptolemy, features two snakes in reference to Cleopatras demise. It is designed so that the reverse featuring an imperial eagle is also visible. Ptolemy XII (117-51 BC) was the twelfth consecutive Emperor (from 80-58 and 55-51 BC) in the Egyptian Ptolemaic Dynasty. Before Ptolemy XII’s reign, the geographical distance between Rome and Egypt resulted in an indifferent attitude towards each other. Ptolemy XII attempted to secure his own fate and the fate of his dynasty by means of a pro-Roman policy. An internal rebellion sent him into exile to Rome in 58 BC. After the death of Ptolemy XII, he was succeeded by his daughter Cleopatra VII, the last of the Pharaohs, who died in 30 BC from an asps poisonous bite after the defeat of her lover Mark Antony.
