Round Tuit Detail - Roman Version
The original Roman Round Tuit is a bronze disk, approximately 10 inches (25 centimetres) in diameter and a half inch (1.2 centimetres) thick.
The condition of the Round Tuit is excellent, considering its age, but it does show some surface blemishes and damage.
Details - Outer to Inner
The outer rim of the disk consists of a chequered pattern with a row of inward pointing spikes. Then follows a repeat pattern of astrological symbols, followed by a row of outward pointing spikes.
The next inward ring consists of Roman numerals followed by a ring of raised circles.
The inner portion of the design consists of a central sun with a representation of the heavens, showing various phases of the moon and a myriad of stars. Some of the moon and star symbols have Greek letters associated with them - their meanings are still being interpreted.
The images shown are actual photographs of the brass reproduction for sale as beautiful medallions on this web site. Not only do these images show the intricate detail found on the original - they also show how the detail has been lovingly recreated in the medallion.
