Description

Ancient Roman cornelian intaglio of Fortuna. Set horizontally with an oval cornelian intaglio engraved with the profile of Fortuna with crossed cornucopiae (horns of plenty) and the letters 'VLK' in a closed back rubover setting, flanked by broad rounded integrated shoulders and leading through to a tapering rounded shank. Tested yellow gold, approximately 9.1g in weight, circa mid 2nd-mid 3rd century AD, accompanied by an Oxford Labs X-Ray fluorescence analysis report stating the composition of the metal.

The Ancient Roman goddess Fortuna, the equivalent of the Greek goddess Tyche, was the personification of luck and prosperity. The wearing of this ring as an amulet would have brought good luck to the wearer.
