Item:223777698151Ring A 738 - VERY RARE ROMAN INTAGLIO SEAL BRONZE RING, LION IMAGE+++Roman Bronze Seal Intaglio Ring, circa 2nd. century AD. Cast in one piece. Hoop and oval bezel depicting a Lion image and Palm branch in front. Deep hand engraving with beautiful clear seal intaglio. Marvelous dark green patina with some earth deposits, still remaining on the surface!!! Wearable and intact!!! NOTE:Engraved intaglio designs cut directly in a metal bezel were originally intended for use as seals, and that function was still important throughout the Roman period, and the tiny image of a deity or the familiar attribute of a god or goddess carried on the person would also have had a powerful apotropaic force, and this was an equally compelling reason for the wearing of rings with engraved bezels in the Roman Empire.Inner Size:18/14mm; Authenticity Guaranteed 100% +++Condition:High Museum Quality!!!, Provenance:Ownership History Not Available, Material:Bronze
