About the item

An ancient Roman solid gold repousse ring with the god Pan mounting a goat and shoulders with granulation.\n\nIn classical mythology, Pan was the god of the wild, shepherds and flocks, nature of mountain wilds, rustic music and impromptus, and companion of the nymphs. He has the hindquarters, legs, and horns of a goat, in the same manner as a faun or satyr. The ancient Greeks also considered Pan to be the god of theatrical criticism. The word panic ultimately derives from the gods name. The Christian devil is inspired from the greek god Pan. However, Pan was not depicted as evil in Greek mythology. Instead people loved to hear the stories of Pan and his sexual adventures. Pan was a kind god of nature. The god Pan was noted for his sexual adventures with animals, famously displayed on the statue recovered from the Villa of the Papyri, Herculaneum, Italy.\n\nMaterial: Solid Gold, high carat\nWeight: 5.98 g\nDate: Roman, 1st - 2nd century AD\nMeasurement: 24 x 20 mm (overall), internal diameter: 22 mm (ringsize)\nCondition: Extremely fine condition\nProvenance: Dutch private collection\n\nCertificate of authenticity + ring box included.\n\nInternational registered Delivery. \n\nProvenance: The Supplier warrants that is has obtained this lot in a legal manner. \nFrom a private Dutch collection.\n\nImportant information: \nThe seller guarantees that he is entitled to ship this lot. \nThe seller will take care that any necessary permits will be arranged. \nThe seller will inform the buyer about this if this takes more than a few days.
