Some of the oldest beads and pendants in our collection, likely made in Carthage by core forming. Pendants with men’s heads, featuring curly hair and beards (like the one on the far left) are by far the bestknown work of the Phoenicians, who also crafted pendants with rams’ heads (far right) as well as cylindrical barrel beads with protruding eyes that are thought to have been used as protection against the “evil eye” (second from left).
