Sterling silver | 18 mm | 3 g

Ring in a Greek-Roman style and the face of the grimacing Gorgon. On the ring a Greek inscriptionGORGO NEION. Universal size (split ring). In Greek mythology Medusa ('cunning queen') was the only mortal of the three Gorgon sisters. The gorgons Medusa Stheno and Euryale were vicious female monsters with brass hands sharp fangs and hair of living venomous serpents. Medusa's cheeks puffed out and her tongue lolled between her fangs. She was literally petrifying to look upon: every creature who saw her was turned to a stone of the earth.
