Description

Ancient Roman cornelian signet ring with engraving of Mars. Set with one central oval cornelian intaglio in a closed back rubover setting featuring an engraved full length profile of the ancient Roman god Mars, polished borders and closed backholing, leading to solid shoulders and flowing through to a tapering solid court shaped shank. Tested yellow gold, circa 2nd-3rd century AD.

In Roman mythology Mars was the god of war, with the Greek equivalent called Ares.

The intaglio set in this ring is carved with minute precision, each line building up the image which is crisply executed and is in excellent condition.
