Born a minor goddess with little influence, Circe had to manifest her own power through witchcraft—unlike the other gods, whose powers are innate to their immortal souls. Spells and magic were unnatural to them, and for her otherness, Circe was banished by Zeus to live alone on the island Aeaea.
Months turned into years on her enchanted island as Circe worked away, honing her craft, taming lions and wolves as companions. It was there, in solitude, where she discovered the true extent of her gifts. With the bountiful herbs, roots, and flowers of Aeaea, Circe practiced until she all but perfected the art of witchcraft.
Now and then, a lost ship would arrive on Circe’s shores and break her isolation. More often than not, the crew was made up of cruel and lustful men who would not hesitate to take advantage of a woman living alone. Unwilling to sacrifice her safety for their comfort, Circe sensed their intentions before they could act, and cast a spell to transform these men into pigs.
This medallion is etched with a line drawing of Circe, with a 1.3mm diamond sun shining down upon her, just like on her island, Aeaea.
