    About this item

    This is a fabulous ancient Roman intaglio, dating to c. 50 B.C. - 50 A.D. It is nicely cut on a fiery orange carnelian gemstone, with an image of the goddess Victory standing beside a trophy or arms. Such as gem would have been set into a gold or silver military signet ring, used to seal and authenticate letters and dispatches. Today this ancient gem has survived down to us in perfect condition, suitable for remounting into a gold signet ring today.
