Ring, late 6th–early 5th b.c. Etruscan. Gilt silver. This ring testifies to the complexity of artistic interconnection at the end of the Archaic period. The bezel is in the form of a cartouche, a shape ultimately of Egyptian origin that the Phoenicians disseminated in the western Mediterranean. The 3 mythological creatures that decorate it—winged lion, siren, and scarab beetle—came from the East as well.
