"The miniaturist art of gem engraving is here accorded its proper place as one of the major arts. This book presents a comprehensive account of the art in Greek lands from the early Bronze Age down to the Hellenistic period. The whole archaeology of the gems and signet rings--materials, techniques, shapes-is thoroughly examined; and the subject matter of the engraved scenes is set in its historical and mythological context, revealing much that will be new to students of Greek mythology and iconography."
