    1906 ATHENS PENDANT (BRONZE). With the resumption of international Olympic competition in 1896, its popularity prompted interest in staging such games every two years.  Those years not divisible by '4' were to be staged at a predetermined Hellenic site.  The first (and only) of these games was hosted by Athens, appropriately enough.  (Political unrest in Greece cancelled the 1910 Games, and the institution was never resumed.)  That isolated Olympiad of '06 has come to be known as "unofficial," although it was conducted in the same spirit as those regularly scheduled to the present.  This offered pendant was worn by a member of the 'bronze' committee in 1906.  It measures about 1" at the vertical axis, and is adorned by an assortment of imagery pertinent to the event.
