A pair of earrings with the motif of Hercules knot

A pair of closed-loop gold earrings, decorated with filigree threads and granulation in the shape of a Hercules knot.

The Herculean knot is a symbol of Herculean strength, endurance, but also unbreakable marriage connections and covenants.

The Romans took over the knot motif from the Greeks.

Found at the site of Beli Breg (Mala Kopašnica) by archaeological excavations in 1960.

Earrings with the Herculean knot motif are a part of the Permanent Exhibition of the National Museum in Leskovac.
