Gold-plated bronze replica of a gold wreath of myrtle leaves from Macedonia (323 - 330 BC). Myrtle wreaths, which were common in many regions, especially of Macedonia and southern Italy, alluded to Aphrodite, Demetra and Persephone, goddesses of fertility and vegetation. Such gold wreaths have mainly come from royal tombs and constitute exceptional examples of the goldsmith's art in the Hellenistic period.
