The existence and interpretation of nudity in Minoan iconography has received much attention for almost a century. In this short essay a particular group of seals will be considered, namely the Minoan golden Signet rings. Their elaborate iconography includes, among other features, certain female figures in various stances, which are apparently nude. They have ‘pronounced thighs’. These female figures have been variously interpreted and sacral or divine status has often been attributed to them.
