Kritonios Crown

The Kritonios Crown is an ancient ornate golden crown or wreath dating to the 4th century BC. It was discovered in 1814 in the tomb of a man named Kritonios in Italy. A twig of oaks forms the base, from which elements with chalices of blue enamel protrude, with intertwined patterns of convolvulus, ivy and myrtle; the top features an image of winged goddess. The pedestal on which the goddess stands bears a Greek inscription ΚΡEΙΘΩNIOΣ HΘHKH TON ETHΦANON (Kritonios dedicated this crown}. Four male genii and two draped female figures float over the flowers; the errors in the inscription on the crown indicate the work of a Lucanian artist who studied at Heraclea or Taranto. The style of the headgear's figures indicate a date around 350 BC; the crown is housed in the Staatliche Antikensammlungen, Germany
