Description: Necklace with Cleopatra engraved on a Sardonic cameo worked by the master craftsmen of Torre del Greco.
Did you know that , Cleopatra VII bears the illustrious name of the only legitimate sister of Alexander the Great. Her fame is harnessed in a stereotyped and firm idea: that of the unscrupulous seductress, of the oriental queen capable, with magical arts, of leading not one, but two well-known Romans away from the right path: Julius Caesar and Antonio. In fact, Cleopatra is the last great queen of Egypt, heir of the Ptolemaic dynasty; the only one able to skillfully keep the throne and kingdom for twenty years, despite the increasing and increasingly hostile pressures from Rome.
