      Hiss is a snake bracelet from the 1st century A.D.

      Designed to look like a coil around the wearer, this would have been worn in a pair on the wrist or upper arm. A tinier head appears coming from the snake’s tail. Look closely.

      Snake Bracelet, A.D. 1 - 100, Romano-Egyptian. J. Paul Getty Museum.
