Ring with two-headed snake from Oplonti (Pompei), inspired by the original 1st cen. BC ring, displayed in the Archaeological Museum of Naples.

In Roman religion, the serpent-shaped Genie (lat. Genius) was the benevolent guardian spirit of families and individuals. In Pompei the snake represented fertility and sexuality. Snake-body rings as protective symbols were widespread in the Roman era.
