Huge Roman Gold pendant decorated with Nymph and Satyr. Circa 2nd century AD. Ex private London collection, purchased before 1950. Most likely southern Italy. It is hard to describe just how large and stunning this pendant is. It will surely make an impact if worn today as it did 2,000 years ago. Suspension hoop is intact so it is perfectly wearable.
