Details

"Gemma Augustea" - Roman relief showing Emperors Augustus and Tiberius and Roman legionaries erecting a Tropaion. The Gemma Augustea (Latin, Gem of Augustus) is a low-relief cameo gem cut from a double-layered Arabian onyx stone. It is commonly agreed that the gem cutter who created the Gemma Augustea was either Dioscurides or one of his disciples, in the teens or twenties of the first century CE. To the right, Emperor Augustus enthroned next to the personification of the Roma, to be crowned. On the left his successor, Tiberius getting off a chariot, which goddess of victory Victoria is steering. In the bottom, victorious Roman legionaries erect a Tropaion (Victory Monument) with the subjected "barbarians" observing the scene. The semiprecious stone was probably made in 10 AD in Rome.
