The CBd
Bonner 1951 on CBd-970
C. Bonner, Amulets Chiefly in the British Museum, Hesperia 20, 1951, 301-345, no. 62.

Obv. Described above, p. 305. Probably copied from Chiflet's pl. 19, 78 or the original which it represents. The engraving in Chiflet represents the two outermost of the four dancing figures as winged. The wings may have been added by Chiflet's draftsman, possibly because he misunderstood two lines that curve upward behind the figures, but do not actually touch them. In any event the present object is not the original of Chiflet's amulet, which had a reverse design different from that of the London stone.
Rev. Same as obverse of Nos. 60 /CBd-2189/ and 61 /CBd-969/; discussed above p. 305.
Crimson jasper, set in ring with pivoted bezel. Upright oval, 30 x 21.
