Glass cameo fragment
Translucent deep honey brown with opaque turquoise green overlay.
Flat underside; top surface with shallow relief decoration.
In relief in green, naked youthful satyr, facing right with head in profile, torso and legs in three-quarter view, and proper right arm raised behind him; torso rendered with musculature in fine detail; on his head, above his pointed proper right ear, is what appears to be a leaf or wing, picked out by differential weathering.
Broken on all sides with weathered edges; dulling, slight pitting, patches of weathering and brilliant iridescence on back.
The fragment comes from a flat panel of glass, probably a plaque rather than a vessel. The honey brown ground and opaque turquoise overlay are an unusual combination for Roman cameo glass.
