Cameo of Amphitrite, a sea goddess, and a cupid riding on dolphins in a wavy sea. She holds a billowing swag over her head. The scene is derived from Roman reliefs and was very popular in Renaissance Italy. Text adapted from Ancient and Modern Gems and Jewels in the Collection of Her Majesty The Queen, London, 2008
