A postclassical lapis lazuli gnostic intaglio. Astrological and magical symbols.

16th-17th century.
13x13x3 mm

The character is standing facing front, wearing a talar crossed-pattern dress or mummiform sheath (?). The face surmonted by a flat hat (?). On each side star and crescent moon. The reverse of the stone shows a syncretic attribute with stylized caduceus and crescent moon. On the corners, glyphs and letters. This iconography reminds the gnostic repertoire of the egypto-roman amulets and glyptic productions.
