 Description

Ancient Roman engraved ring featuring Victory. The central domed plaque engraved with a detailed winged figure of Victory, flanked by trumpeting smoothly integrated shoulders which flow through to a solid D-shape shank. Tested yellow gold, approximately 7.8g in weight, circa 2nd-3rd century AD.

In the ancient Roman period, Victoria was the personified goddess of victory, symbolising victory over death and determining who would triumph during war. She was worshiped by triumphant generals returning from war but also played a major part in Roman society with temples erected in her honour and her image appearing widely on jewellery and coins. The Greek equivalent of the Roman goddess of Victory was known as Nike.

This ring is in fine condition with an attractive patina.
