This translucent light blue glass amulet (102.10HD) was found in Lebanon and dates into the Roman Period, c.100BC-100AD. Measuring ¾” in length, the amulet is embossed in the center of its disk with an image that is impossible to assuredly identify (it appears to be a figure with arms stretched far out from its shoulders).
