Bi-color intaglio

(1/1)

Hi,

This glass intaglio has motif similar to Tyre symbol: Astarte standing right, crowned by Nike standing on column. Murex shell at base of column. The left leg of Astarte looks too schematic and unfinished.
The intaglio size is 10x13mm.

What a beautiful artifact!  There are some gems in A. Hamburger's article of Gems from Caesarea showing Nike crowning Fortuna, but nothing exactly like this.

Thank you guys, I like this small item too.
Can I assume II-III centuries AD?
