A beautiful Ancient Roman solid gold ring featuring an ellipsoid section hoop and an oval bezel. The bezel is set with an orange and white banded agate, delicately engraved with an intaglio. The intaglio depicts a male nude, standing in a relaxed contrapposto pose, facing right. The figure is most likely a representation of Theseus, the hero from Greek and Roman mythology, most famous for slaying the Minotaur. He is depicted holding an object in his hands; a sheathed sword attached to a belt, possibly his father’s.
