"Gold Pendant - Roman Art, 2nd-4th Century. Ap. Ad"A roman gold earing.
Circa 2nd - 4th cent A.D.
Pendant in thin gold leaf, composed of an assembly of several elements
globular. A central convex disc-shaped element makes the composition heavier.
To this disc is welded a round wire with a spiral termination. He is himself
attached to a cylinder, to which is welded a cluster of hollow globules decorated with
medium granular pendants (5-6/10ths thick). We note the
presence of concretions and old patinas. Good state of conservation.
Of a type known in the 3rd century AD around the Black Sea and in Asia Minor,
as evidenced by the examples preserved at the British Museum.
