    Some time ago I Showed you this Berlin Iron iron bracelet dated end 18s beginning 19s on this site. I already know some thing from there. But not (yet) which figure is shown. So my question to my fellow collectors:
    Who can tell me which person in the image ?

    Our fellow collector Solver suggested Minerva and I see a great resemblance, you too?

    In localised Celtic polytheism practised in Britain, (Sulis) Minerva was a deity worshipped at the thermal spring of Bath (now in Somerset). She was worshipped by the Romano-British as Sulis Minerva, whose votive objects and inscribed lead tablets suggest that she was conceived of both as a nourishing, life-giving mother goddess and as an effective agent of curses wished by her votaries.
    Photo 4 is a Gilt bronze head from the cult statue of Sulis Minerva from the Temple at Bath, found in Stall Street in 1727 and now displayed at the Roman Baths (Bath).
    As you can see on my earlier posting of this bracelet:
    The other cast iron cameo depicting Psyche .
    Minerva or also called Menerva is a personification of the divine power of the mind, of the ingenuity of the human mind. In addition to the other cameo on the clasp of this bracelet depicting Psyche for the mind is a logical combination to display on a piece of jewelry in my opinion .

      Hi, agram. I love your very unusual piece.

      My first impression is that she is Minerva but am probably wrong since my first impression is always that of Minerva. ;-)
