The Adoni Ring is shaped from red resin, and bears the face of the mythical gorgoneion.
The cult of Adoni refers to the most beautiful person in the Greek mythological pantheon: Adonis, lover of Aphrodite. His mother, Myrrha, was transformed into a tree by the Gods while heavily pregnant. Her feet became roots, and her arms and fingers branches. Her blood was turned to resin, or myrrh, which came forth when she birthed Adonis. As a divinely handsome young man, he carried the scent of this resin, considered to be the most desirable perfume of the classical period.
