This appears to me to be a shell cameo - it measures 5.5 cms x 4 cms - and has been hidden in a drawer for many years. It intrigues me because it shows a man - in fine detail - and (apart from gods and other mythical heroes) this does not seem all that common. Somehow I get the feeling that it represents a specific person - but I may be well off-base on that one! If anyone can give ANY views or insights I would be hugely grateful.
