Seller: randall3563 (848) 100%, Location: Auburn, California, Ships to: US, Item: 202355018282 Circa 2nd Century AD 25 mm Diameter 7.0 grams This large double-headed snake earring is made of high karat yellow gold. The ring body is solid giving the earring a sturdy feel to it.The two snake heads are very lifelike with incised crosshatching used to represent the texture of scales. The stem between the two mouths gives the impression of the snakes swallowing their tails. Their is a small 1 mm gap on one side of the stem that was designed to be pulled apart for the stem to fit in the pierced ear hole. This is a rare and very high quality piece. I have a crazy wonderful solid gold snake arm bracelet with similar artistic attributes. I have included a pic (last one ~ #5) as an interesting comparison. It was made in Egypt during the same period as the popular cult of Isis was reaching it's peak. The earring is in Excellent Condition with only micro-abrasions and nicks from use that are only visible under magnification. Ex.
