Description
The person who first wore this engraved gem in a ring was witness to the Golden Age of Rome. The pagan subject matter gives only a small hint about that ancient life, while the rest is left to the imagination. Did it belong to an offical in the Imperial court? A priestess at the temple of the god? Someone who had actually visited the great cities of Rome and Alexandria and seen their ancient wonders? To wear this lovely gem today is to link ourselves directly with that vanished person who cherished it so long ago and to write our own chapter in its history. - (FJ.2683)
