The gold chain represents the only object which has any significance within the play. The chain is a symbol of a negative sign of possession. It is first promised to Adriana, then to the Courtesan, neither of whom receives it. Antipholus and Angelo are both arrested because of the fact that they no longer have the chain, since it was incorrectly given to Antipholus of Syracuse. The chain also functions as a sign of money, because it hold the ability to produce pardon. Its value is enough to pardon Egeon, and Antipholus of Ephesus could also have been pardoned immediately if he had had the chain.
