A very large Gnostic agate intaglio. A Roman soldier (identified by the legionary eagle) faces Anubis (representing Egypt), standing on level field. Texts appear to be Latin below the figures, with Aramaic characters in the field behind. Each figure holds attributes of position and status. Apparently representing the union of Egypt to Roma. Four significant stars and a crescent moon above. Circa 1st century BC/AD - Private U.S.A. collection.
