Hellenistic Gold Oak Wreath, c. 4th-3rd Century BC. A Greek Hellenistic diadem wreath comprising numerous projecting sprays of sheet-gold oak leaves in two sizes with serrated edges and veins. The most famous of such wreaths is the example from Vergina in the tomb of Philip II of Macedon, father of Alexander the Great. The oak leaves may symbolize the power of Zeus, who was often represented by the oak tree. This is a finely detailed example of the type executed with great skill.
