dc.description Roman, c. 100 – 200 C.E.
dc.description Ceramic medallion, most likely Roman, was most likely worn as personal jewelry; the handle, now broken, depicts traces of a hole drilled while the clay was still wet. The beardless face wears a fillet around about the forehead and is framed by two clusters of grapes; this characteristic likely making it a depiction of a youthful god Bacchus (Dionysos). Such depicts are more common from the Roman era, earlier representations, such as Greek and Hellenistic, tending to depict him as older and bearded.
