Description

Ancient Roman carnelian intaglio of a Gryllos. Gryllos is a mythical “creature” part animal part human. I have had many grylloses but never really understood the original meaning and usage of it. It obviously is used as a talismanic “force” and its varied in its forms. The one that is pictured here is made up of a head of an elephant joined into it are three bearded profiles. The intaglio is ca first century A.D. and the setting is high carat and “modern”
Ring size “O” + 1/2 Size of bezel 16×14 mm weight:10 gram
