Description

The engraved stone depicts, on the different chromatic layers of the gem, a warrior with beard and helmet with crest and dressed in armor. The soldier places his knee on the ground in the foreground and holds in his right arm the large rounded shield with a gorgoneion in the center. It is a pattern which, with variations, is used to represent the wounded hero. The material used for this work of the Republican age is a chalcedony-agate cut "with a magic eye" probably to enhance the protective value of the stone which, in addition to being a seal, was also to serve as an amulet.
