The front of this pendant is a recreation of an ancient Roman image depicting the Goddess Juno. This may be a depiction of an individual woman's Juno or Iuno natilus. The Iuno was a tutelary spirit that protected a woman throughout her life. Coins and images were struck at the temple of Juno Moneta (Juno the Warner). The temple's sacred geese on Capitoline Hill warned the Roman army that the Gauls were attacking in 390 BCE.

The figure on the back is seated with a lyre. Perhaps this represents Apollo or Juno's son Mars.
