An exquisite single Ancient Greek-Hellenistic earring adorned with the depiction of Eros, the Greek god of love. The figure of the child-Eros is crafted with hands on his hips and a sash across his chest, composed of miniscule granules. The sash is the usual attribute of Eros on Greek jewellery, presumably used so he can carry his quiver.
