Golden rosette (2nd half of the 7th c. BC.)

  The rosette consists of a gold sheet, around the edges of which is a border formed of twisted wire on the outside and delicate granulation on the inside. The centre of the six-leaf rosette is occupied by the head of a roaring lion. The projecting pointed tongue is made of a separate piece of thin sheet. Each leaf is adorned by a double rosette, also decorated with filigree and granulation. The small rosettes and the lion’s head are surrounded by clusters of three or seven small dots.
  A masterpiece from a Melian workshop, this rosette, and the gold rosettes nos Xρ. 1177, 1179-1181 in the National Archaeological Museum, would have adorned a diadem, possibly made of leather.
