Greek gold spirals with female protomes, classical period, third quarter of the 4th century B.C. Allegedly from Selinunte, Tarentine. Scholars are unanimous in ascribing such spiral ornaments surmounted by female protomes to Tarentum, though there is controversy as to whether they are to be considered as hair-rings or ear-ring, 2cm to 4 cm long.

Greek gold spiral , East Greek 7th–6th century B.C. Gold ornaments in a spiral shape are well known throughout the history of Greek jewelry, appearing with either a strictly abstract decoration, as in this early example, or fi tted with animal and even female heads. They are often interpreted as hair ornaments, as they usually do not have a device to fasten them to the earlobe, 4.5 cm long. Private collection
