Gold Leaf Crown
In ancient times, the laurel crown was a distinction given only to the greatest. The Greeks awarded laurel crowns to the winners of athletic competitions like the Olympics, and the Romans reserved them for triumphant military commanders. This is where the expression “resting on one’s laurels” comes from, as it describes someone who’s sort of coasting through life thanks to a great but past achievement. See?
