Description

Ancient Roman gold ring with Faunus intaglio. Set with a round glass intaglio incised with a bust of Faunus, in a closed back rubover setting, proceeding to smoothly rounded shoulders and terminating in a solid D-shape shank, approximately 1.6g in weight. Tested yellow gold, circa 1st-2nd century AD.

A Roman deity, Faunus was worshiped as the god of the forest, plains and fields. A mythological hybrid with human and goat attributes, in this example Faunus is distinguished by his horns. The Greek equivalent for this deity is Pan.
