On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 158

Pediment-shaped gold diadem (06.1217.1)
Pair of gold earrings with disk and boat-shaped pendant (06.1217.11–.12)
Gold strap necklace with seedlike pendants (06.1217.13)
Gold necklace of beads and tubes (06.1217.3)
Gold snake ring (06.1217.2)
Seven gold rosettes (06.1217.4–.10)
This group of jewelry is said to be from Madytos on the European side of the Hellespont. The gold diadem is richly worked in repoussé with an elaborate floral pattern. Dionysos, the god of wine, and his wife Ariadne sit in the center; muses playing musical instruments perch among vines along the sides. The tiny figure of a muse playing a lyre also appears just above the crescent form on each of the boat-shaped earrings. The seedlike pendants of the earrings are identical to those on the elaborate necklace.
