Phalic amulet ring
Ring with phallus in relief, centuries I to III d.C. The original piece is made of gold and is located in the Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen.
The cult to the phallus in ancient Rome had a double function:
- Protection against the evil eye.- Pliny the Elder called him medicus invidiae, the 'doctor' for envy or the evil eye.
- Symbol of fertility. - The Romans felt great concern to protect and promote fertility, because it brought associated wealth and happiness.
