From a coral cameo I had once, I made researches and found out it was the portrait of Eschyle, the famous greek writer.
Then I restrung it on a 3 strands vintage deep red coral beads necklace and add 2 antique drops. Sold now to a collector.
Can we imagine that artists in Torre del Greco carved some others famous greek faces?
As anyone can see, the cameo is a clasp, interesting isn't?
...OnlyVintageCoral... I love

    Is the beard a bit too long for "Aeschylus"? Perhaps Poseidon? But it was a wonderful piece, thanks for sharing it with us. I'll put my coral necklace on CW soon.

    Does someone know him :) maybe a more updated photo ?
    I mean the facial features speak for itself, Poseidon would have been carved for some marine instrument, IMHO.
    "Aeschylus" you are right, Eschyle is in french.
    Anyway one-of-a-kind definitely.

    Socrates on the left would be my guess.

    Hum, Socrates's nose does not match the coral carving
    Aeschylus is the winner so far
    All suggestions welcome
