Roman Lead Seal, Love Letter with Venus, c. 3rd Cent AD

Lead; 14mm/3.0gm

Venus (Roman Goddess of Love) stg. r., holding apple and small figure of a bird before.

Our best guess is that this very small and intimate seal was used by a lover or wife to send her love in a personal letter.

The figure of Venus is quite elegant and may have been produced by a mint celetor on his day off.
