  49. Have a look to This page, in French, but the whole blog is so interesting, worth to translate ! Scroll down to an amethyst antique roman cameo: http://richardjeanjacques.blogspot.fr/2014/02/les-came...
  50. Wonderful piece of art, the marble mix is so skillful! You may try a rubbing of the signature, it will be more neat, I think :-)
