Description

Ancient Roman cornelian bull intaglio ring. Set horizontally with an oval cornelian intaglio with a finely engraved image of a bull with star and crescent moon, in a closed back rubover setting with an attractive wirework border, set on a smoothly conforming flat lattice work shank with fine beaded edging. Tested yellow gold, approximately 3g in weight, circa 1st-2nd century AD.

The intaglio set in this ring is carved with minute precision, each line building up the image which is crisply executed. This is a museum quality ring, and a very fine example of An-cient Roman craftsmanship, showcasing several highly technical goldworking techniques, in excellent condition.
