The amulet is particularly prevalent in ancient Roman society, being the inheritor of the ancient Greektradition, and inextricably linked to Roman Religionand Magic . [Charm] Through out history Amulets are usually outside of the normal sphere of religious experience having associations between certain gemstones and gods has been suggested, for example, Jupiteris represented on milky chalcedony, Solon heliotrope, Marson red jasper, Cereson green jasperand Bacchuson amethyst.For Centuries, Amulets[Charms ] are worn to imbue the wearer with the associated powers of the gods rather than for any reasons of piety. The intrinsic power of the amulet is also evident from others bearing inscriptions, such as VTEREFELIX (UTERE FELIX) or "good luck to the user."Amulet boxes could also be used, such as the example from part of the Thetford treasure, Norfolk, UK, where a gold box intended for suspension around the neck was found to contain sulphur for its apotropaic qualities.
