Description

Ancient Roman gold ring with intaglio of Victoria. Set with an oval hardstone cabochon intaglio of the winged goddess of victory, Victoria, encircled by a double frame of intricate granulated rows with circular beading to the shoulders, to a solid D-shape shank. Tested yellow gold, approximate weight 4.84g, circa 2nd - 3rd century AD.

Victoria is the Roman goddess of victory, with the Greek eqivalent being Nike.

A similar example can be found in Taylor, G. & Scarisbrick, D. 'Finger Rings from Ancient Egypt to the Present Day', Oxford, 1978, type 17.

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.
