"Carthage" golden plated ring

This ring is inspired by a ring with a swivel bezel, from Carthage.

Carthage (Quart Hadasht, the "new city") was founded in 814 BC by the sister of the king of Tyre, Elissa-Didon. The Phoenicians set up their first colonies in Spain, then along the coast of North Africa and on the Iberian coasts. In the 6th century BCE, taking advantage of the decline of Tyre, Carthage established its hegemony in the western Mediterranean with the support of the Etruscans to thwart the Greek power. It opened there trading posts and settlements.

His prosperity threatened in Rome. This confrontation leads to the three Punic wars that result in the destruction of Carthage in 146 BC. It is called Punic Phoenician civilization implanted in the West which testifies to very strong links with the metropolises of the Levant, but is largely impregnated with influences Libyque, Egyptian and Greek; the production of stelae, terracotta masks and jewels illustrates this contribution.
