The intention of this catalog is to present, many for the first time, the entrire Borowski collection of ancient gems and finger rings from Classical lands, ranging in date from the Bronze Age through to the late Roman and Sasanian periods. Since the history of ancient gems has been more than adequately presented by others, no attempt has been made here to write a history of the topic. Interested readers are directed to the extensive bibliography.
