Good luck with the goddess of the moon!
From 1st century AD.
Among the many forms of hardware, lucky charms and amulets, which archaeologists find from the Roman times, crescent-shaped ornaments are often found. From the 1st century A.d., they encounter these ornaments in almost all Roman settlements, cemeteries and military camps.
But also in the free Germania the lunula luck found a wide dissemination, as demonstrated by numerous archaeological finds.
The importance of this piece is handed down. It is a so-called lunula pendant, a "Lune". It was the symbol of the Roman Moon Goddess Luna who had special powers. Especially children and women relied on the evil forces that the pendant would protect them from. In a further interpretation the night star is seen as a symbol of feminine strength and identity. It stands for intuition, creativity and sensuality.
It is in almost all the settlements, since the 1st century A.d. to find cemeteries and military camps. As a general good luck it was also worn by men.
