Julio-Claudian Cameo
by: Julius

Cameo with a laureate head of a Roman emperor usually with short curly hair - the distinctive hairstyle suggests the Emperor is a member of the Julio-Claudian family.

MALE CAMEO

ANTIQUE CAMEO CARVED SHELL FROM
YOUR CAMEO IS PROBABLY SHELL CARVED FROM
1860-1880. YES, VICTORIAN ERA WHEN MALE CAMEOS
WERE CARVED. SOUNDS LIKE THE GOD BACCHUS, GOD
OF WINE AND MERRY MAKING. HE WORE A GARLAND OF
WINE LEAVES IN HIS HAIR--VERY VIRILE IN APPEARANCE.

I HAVE SIX MALE CAMEOS--3 ARE OF
BACCHUS. HE WAS VERY POPULAR!

Zeus, Ancient Greek Mythological Heavyweight!
by: Anonymous

Decorum in the forum please ladies!

B, The date tells us, your male Antique Cameo was made sometime in the Victorian era, after the civil war in the US. Just a bit of background info, 1886, was the year that gold was discovered in South Africa.

Although we don't have the benefit of a photo, the details you mention about the subject, make me think it could be the Ancient Greek heavyweight, ZEUS.

Zeus in Greek mythology is the king of the gods, the ruler of Mount Olympus, and the god of the sky and thunder. His symbols are the thunderbolt, eagle, bull and the oak. Zeus was a popular cameo subject.

I would love to know more about this hard-stone onyx male cameo; is he in a frame? Are there markings on the frame? Onyx which is ranked 7 (Diamond is about 10 and CZ is around 9) on the Mohs scale is a fitting choice of cameo material, for such a regal and fiercely strong subject such as Zeus.

Best Wishes,

Yvonne

The Garland of Leaves on Male Cameo
by: Curious Cameo

Hi B.

aren't you the lucky one. This male Cameo sounds interesting! Yes, I couldn't agree more, a good male cameo is hard to come by these days. Is the garland of leaves, by any chance, around his head?
