ANCIENT ROMAN SHELL PENDANT C.100-400 AD
Silvered bronze. 1” height. Reeded domed form, recessed in the rear. Romans were dependent on the sea for food and transportation. Much Roman mythology centers on sea creatures and legend. This pendant would have had spiritual significance in that context. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored on a modern sterling silver necklace for contemporary wear. Gift boxed with a certification of authenticity.
