Vitreae gemmae, volgi anuli. Bagues et intailles méditerranéennes en Bohême à l’époque de La Tène
Languages of publication
The paper presents a series of finger rings with/or gems of Mediterranean origin unearthed in Bohemia in Late Iron Age contexts. The rings and gems are studied from formal and stylistic point of view; results of technological analyses are also taken into consideration. The assemblage of finger rings from Bohemia is subsequently confronted with other Transalpine finds. The imported rings are relatively numerous in Bohemia but they are of a mediocre quality. Issues concerning the function of rings in the Late La Tène society as well as their role as indicators of romanisation are discussed in the end of the paper.
