Ganymede is a divine hero of Greek mythology, born in Troy, who worked tending sheep. Homer describes him as “the loveliest born of the race of mortals”, and for this reason he caught the eye of the Gods, who wished to bring him to Olympus and keep him as their own. Zeus sent a large eagle, to carry Ganymede away, and brought him to the mountaintop. There he was made the bearer of ambrosia - the wine of the Gods. Ganymede is represented by the constellation Aquarius, as the bearer of liquids. This pendant made from green agate carries intricate and delicate carvings.
