This authentic Roman bronze bead depicting the head of a woman has been mounted in a modern 18 karat gold pendant.

With flowing hair that fall over her ears, framing her face, this woman would surely have been considered as beautiful to the eyes of an Ancient Roman as we consider her today. Who might she represent? A goddess? A priestess? A princess? A past ancestor? There are no definitive attributes that might reveal her true identity. However, we can presume that this amulet would have once been worn around the body of a Roman, as evident by the small hole under her chin and on the back the piece, through which as necklace would have been strung.
