Description:

Ptolemaic-Roman Period. A brown chalcedony amulet representing a phallus

Phallic emblems are found on a wide range of objects, from amulets to frescoes to mosaics to lamps. They were symbols intended to bring good luck and ward off evil spirits. As the ancient author Pliny attests, even babies and soldiers wore such charms to invite divine protection.
