Cameo with a bust of a bearded warrior with his shoulders seen from the back and head in profile to the left. He wears classical armour and a helmet with a mask on the visor. The subject is often interpreted as a representation of Mars, the Roman warrior god. Text adapted from Ancient and Modern Gems and Jewels in the Collection of Her Majesty The Queen, London, 2008
