Just over 1” length. Classic depiction with arched body, and fan tail. The head more closely resembling a shark. Dolphins were both revered and feared by Romans and often depicted with vicious toothy mouths. Numerous examples of this image are preserved, with a significant number in mosaics, many with Cupid astride the dolphin. Well modeled and excellent preservation with original detail and surfaces throughout. Refurbished with the gold surface renewed for modern wear.
