A scarab beetle is carved on top, with an ovolo border surmounted by a dotted border around its base. On the underside, the god Apollo sits on a rocky perch, leaning forward while bent over a lyre with four strings. He wears a mantle draped around his waist and left shoulder; his bow lies behind his legs. An inscription in Latin, in two lines runs underneath the lyre and through the bow: APOLO. Hatched border. Its original setting is preserved, a heavy gold hoop with conical terminals with gold wire wrapped around the shoulders of the hoop that are used to hold the scarab in place.
