Abstract

Extremely detailed Minoan gold signet rings are ornamented with exquisite depictions in which the artist leaves nothing to chance. A group of small motifs that appear above the iconography have not yet been satisfactorily explained. The aim of this paper is to define them as a group, describe their traits and peculiarities, and suggest a possible interpretation for their existence.
