English: The Gemma Augustea (Latin, Gem of Augustus) is a low-relief cameo gem cut from a double-layered Arabian onyx stone. It is commonly agreed that the gem cutter who created the Gemma Augustea was either Dioscurides or one of his disciples, in the teens or twenties of the first century CE. Lower part: erection of a tropaion.
