Ancient Roman Glass Weight with double portrait (Profiles) of Imperial Couple.
From portrait characteristics from the known marble busts and coins left from the era allows two possible options for this magnificent small and undoubtedly not common glass weight: Hadrian and Sabina which is more likely or Octavian (but the early portrait without a laurel wreath) and Livia.
A pleasant brown-yellow color and almost intact with a minor scratches mostly on the reverse. The edge is slightly serrated at the top part but the whole image is very well centered and highly embossed.
Exceedingly rare!

Material: Glass
Date:Late 1st. Century BC. or very early 2nd. Century AD.
Size: 1,8cm.
