THREE ETRUSCAN CARNELIAN SCARABS
Circa 4th Century B.C.
Each beetle carefully detailed, the underside of each engraved in the a-globolo style, one with a figure riding a stag; one with Herakles on a raft of four amphorae; and one with a running panther, its head turned frontal; mounted together as a brooch in a late 19th century gold 'Classical Revival' setting, recalling the work of the Italian jewelers Castellani and Giuliano
11/16 in. (1.7 cm.) long (largest)
