D. Williams and J. Ogden, in Greek Gold: Jewellery of the Classical World, London, 1994, pp. 35-36 note that, 'The most elaborate items of jewellery were usually made for the adornment of the head...' This spectacular gold diadem is composed of a slender rectangular band decorated with applied double and triple rosettes, with smaller rosettes above and below, flanked by double lotuses with small rosettes between them. Above the lotuses, there are remains of applied figures of women striding forward, each wearing a chiton with raised hands. For similar examples, specifically of the applied double and triple rosettes, cf. F.H. Marshall, Catalogue of the Jewellery, Greek, Etruscan, and Roman, in the Departments of Antiquities, British Museum, Oxford, 1911, nos. 1951-2.
