Fascinum Roman Phallic Pendant Charm Solid Bronze Figurine with Dark Green Patina Museum Reproduction AP0005
Museum Reproduction Roman phallic charm pendant made of bronze and aged with oxidized green patina and earthy surface soil deposits. In ancient Roman religion and magic, the fascinus or fascinum was the embodiment of the divine phallus. The word can refer to the deity himself (Fascinus), to phallus effigies and amulets, and to the spells used to invoke his divine protection. Pliny calls it a medicus invidiae, a “doctor” or remedy for envy (invidia, a “looking upon”) or the evil eye.
