ROMAN BALL PENDANT NECKLACE C.100 BC-100 AD
Silvered bronze, a little over ½” height plus the suspension loop. Handsome trefoil form. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored on a Sterling silver neck chain for modern wear. Gift boxed with certificate of authenticity. Roman Paganism was a form of contractual religion in which giving something or doing something for the Gods earned a favorable and commensurate response. This pendant is probably a badge based on the worship of three preferred Gods with whom a special bond of devotion was formed in hope and expectation of specific protection and favor.
