Description

Ancient Roman Isis Fortuna intaglio ring. Set with an oval cornelian intaglio depicting a full length figure of the goddess Isis Fortuna, holding a rudder and cornucopia and wearing an Egyptian horned headdress, in a closed back rubover setting, encircled by a fine wirework border and flanked by integrated smoothly conforming shoulders which taper to a keeled D-shape shank. Tested yellow gold, approximately 7g in weight, circa 2nd-3rd century AD, accompanied by an Oxford Labs X-ray fluorescence report stating the composition of the metal.

The goddess Isis Fortuna was a composite of the Egyptian goddess Isis and the Roman goddess Fortuna. Isis Fortuna here possesses the attributes of both goddesses, namely the horned headdress of Isis and Fortuna's rudder (refering to her control over the course of human lives), and the cornucopia (symbolising abundance and prosperity).
