Seller: neronpanonia (35) 100%, Location: Vrsac, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 323301428250 Original authentic, found with a metal detector. Very rare pendant worn only by the higher ups in the Catholic Church at the time. Pope Clement I (Latin: Clemens Romanus; Greek: Κλήμης Ῥώμης; died 99), also known as Saint Clement of Rome, is listed by Irenaeus and Tertullian as Bishop of Rome, holding office from 88 to his death in 99. He is considered to be the first Apostolic Father of the Church.On the front of the medal is holding a cross in his right hand, the object of his devotion, and in the left his rule for monasteries. In the back is a poisoned cup, which explains that hostile monks attempted to poison him: the cup containing poisoned wine shattered when the saint made the sign of the cross over it (and a raven carried away a poisoned loaf of bread). This item is from a private collection. The item is not cleaned so the green glass patina is clearly visible to prove its authenticity.
