    I recently purchased this intaglio listed as,

    Roman Bronze Seal Intaglio Ring, circa 2nd.-4th.century AD. Cast in one piece. Wire hoop and tubular bezel, hand engraved with stylized image of a Four Horses Quadriga driving from God Sol from behind."

    But I'm just not seeing Sol. I do see a right facing beast that could be a horse? But no Sol:

    I keep seeing two opposing animals looking away from each other or maybe capricorns?
    That it possibly Zeus looking down at his lap while making a #2:sour:

    Does anyone have any idea what it is? And please post right and wrong answers and any intaglio that you make have:cigar:

    I honestly see 2 sea horses facing opposite directions, between them a guy wearing a turban, facing left and above the Nike sign. :eek:

    Ditto, seahorses.
