Description: Group of 21 terracotta Roman bullae. An interesting group, all fired hard, probably from a fire in one of the eastern cities that was razed by the Sasanian king Shapur II. Each depicts a god, goddess or bust, which was the impression from a ring stone, the opposite side often carrying the grooves from a scroll, box or similar, burned away in the fire. Largest: 7/8 x 3/4 in (2.3 x 2 cm). A neat study group and examples of Roman administrative tools. Ex Royal Athena Galleries, New York.
