Four until-now unpublished intaglios from the Antiquities Collection of the Cetina Territorial Museum in Sinj are analyzed in this article. The gems are from Gardun, the Roman-era Tilurium. They are made of semi-precious cornelian and glass paste. They differ both stylistically and icongraphically. They depict Mercury holding a ram’s head in his right hand, a hero bringing a sacrifice, a smith hammering out a shield and a set of symbols consisting of a calathus with a poppy-head and two corn-ears flanked by cornucopias. They are dated from the second/first century BC to the second century AD.
