Hi, a few days ago, I bought this group of beads on auction on the internet. It was only indicated "ancient beads of different origins" which is a basic indication. The largest bead (but is it really a bead ?) measures 4 cm in length and is conical (1.5 cm and 1 cm). The hole showing wear is also conical: 1cm and 0.5 cm. On each side a « murrine » is applied without apparent design.
I will be grateful to anyone who could help me identify them: Egyptian, Roman, Islamic or other? Thanks.
