This beautiful intaglio, which is in near pristine condition, with it's glassy surface polish resembles intaglios of mythological figures by the celebrated Neapolitan gem engraver Filippo Rega (1761-1833). Compare with the carnelian intaglio with a portrait of a Roman matrona by Rega in the Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore (inv. no. 42.1082).
