Description This necklace, composed of polygonal carnelian beads alternating with gold links, reflects a popular Roman imperial style. One end of the hook-and-eye clasp bears a further decorative element- a disk with the head of Medusa in repoussé. The necklace has a loop-in-loop chain, forming a more elaborate figure-8.
