Description

Ancient Roman Cupid intaglio ring. Set centrally with an oval hardstone intaglio in a closed back rubover setting featuring a finely engraved depiction of the winged figure, Cupid, holding a weapon, all within a granulated border, leading to flat ridged shoulders and flowing through to a double ridged flat shank. Tested yellow gold, circa 2nd century AD.

In Roman mythology Cupid was the god of love, with the Greek equivalent known as Eros. Cupid is depicted on this intaglio brandishing a weapon, symbolising the power of love to disarm the strong.
