Ancient Roman cornelian signet ring with engraving of Mars, 2nd to 3rd century AD. A yellow gold ring set with one central oval cornelian intaglio engraved with a full length profile of the ancient Roman god Mars in a rubover collet setting, set into a heavy gold oval tapered court shaped shank.
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.
