Description

Roman gold signet ring with Pegasus. An oval central plaque finely engraved with a stylised representation of Pegasus with outstretched wings, enclosed within an incised border, the trumpeting shoulders tapering to form a solid D-shape shank. Tested yellow gold, 7.43g, circa 1st-3rd century AD.

One of the most well-known creatures in Greek mythology, Pegasus is depicted as a winged stallion. A symbol of wisdom and fame, Pegasus was charged with the important duty of carrying Zeus' thunderbolts. He was later transformed in to a constellation by Zeus and placed up in the sky in recognition of his loyal and faithful service. The image of Pegasus is associated with the legal profession, and has been used as the symbol of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple since the 16th century.

This ring is in fine condition with an attractive patina.
