dc.description.abstract"Gilded bronze reliefs are characteristic of a group of Roman mirrors of otherwise simple design. Most of the mirrors are small, 9-12 cm in diameter; all have an unadorned, round, reflecting surface of polished high-tin alloy of bronze and are without handles. The gilded reliefs were attached to the backs of the mirrors and are usually framed by a plain convex rim, although a few examples have pierced decoration, or some other ornamental border. Only about seventy-five examples of this type of mirror are known. Wolfgang Zuchner listed fourteen in 1942; Gisela Zahlhaas in her 1975 study catalogued thirty-five, incorporating Zuchner's list. Since 1975 others have appeared on the art market and at least one in an excavation. Dietrich Willers listed the additional examples known to him, and in the most recent study Elizabeth Milleker added ten more."--First paragraph.eng
