Here we have an outstanding intaglio signet ring dating back to the early stages of the 20th century. A marvellous deep intaglio engraved into an oval shaped rich red carnelian depicts Titus Caesar Vespasianus - one of the ancient world's most iconic figures. 

Titus is best known for completing the Colosseum and for his generosity in relieving the suffering caused by two disasters, the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79 and a fire in Rome in 80. After barely two years in office, Titus died of a fever on 13 September 81.

The ring is comprised around the rim of a solid a foliated design in 18ct yellow gold with a white gold axe design on one shoulder and the abbreviation SPQR on the other. 

SPQR is an abbreviation for Senatus Populusque Romanus which is an emblematic abbreviated phrase referring to the government of the ancient Roman Republic. It appears on documents made public by an inscription in stone or metal, in dedications of monuments and public works, and on some Roman currency.
