Gold Ring With A Roman Chromium Chalcedony Intaglio Of The Goddess Nike.

A Roman chromium chalcedony intaglio of the goddess Nike set in a high carat gold ring.

The intaglio dates to the 1st - 2nd century AD, the high carat gold ring is later.

The intaglio measures 0.9 x 0.65cm.

Ring size O UK / 7.25 US.

Nike was a goddess who personified victory in any field including art, music, war, and athletics.

Chromium chalcedony was widely used in jewellery and seals throughout the Roman Empire. Chromium chalcedony disappeared from use in the ancient world in the 2nd century when the known deposits were mined out.

For a ring with a similar intaglio of Nike see the last image from the collection of Walters Art Museum, catalogued as: Ring with an intaglio of Nike (Victory) held up by leopards.This ring was most likely a reward given by an emperor to a successful military leader. Byzantine, 4th century (Late Antique).
