This is an ancient Roman intaglio, dating to the 2nd century AD. It is nicely cut on a natural chromium chalcedony gemstone with an image of Victory; she is depicted holding a wreath and a long palm branch over her shoulder. This gem would have once been set into a military gold or silver signet ring, used to seal and authenticate letters and dispatches. Today this ancient gem has survived down to us in good condition, suitable for remounting or to add to your collection.
