Taras, according to Greek mythology, was the son of Poseidon, the God of the Sea. Legend has it that as a youth, Taras was saved from a shipwreck by riding a dolphin that was sent to him by Poseidon. The dolphin took Taras to shore upon his back and in honor of his rescue, he founded a city at the place where they landed.
The city of Taras was originally populated around the 8th century BC by people from the Greek city of Sparta, but in Greek mythology it was founded with the help of the Gods. Taras became the most important Greek city in Southern Italy, but finally surrendered to the Romans in 272 BC.> Have a coin you would like to be made in a pendant?
