This exquisite 18 kt gold ring features an authentic Roman carnelian intaglio from the 1st-2nd century AD depicting the head of the Greek God Apollo. Apollo was a multifaceted deity in Greek mythology, associated with many aspects of life. He was considered the standard of male beauty and was the son of Zeus and Leto, with his twin sister being Artemis.
Apollo was known as the God of the arts, music, healing, purification, prophecy, oracles, poetry, civilization, the sun, truth, intelligence, logic, reason, and archery. He was also credited with showing men the art of medicine. One of his most famous roles was as the god of prophecy, with his oracle at Delphi being a popular destination for people from all over the Greek world who sought to divine the future.
