The British Museum Byzantine Seminar organizes annual conferences on the material culture of Late Antiquity and Byzantium; the 30 essays here represent all but four of the presentations at the May 2009 conference. The topics include non-destructive gemmological tests to identify ancient gems, magical gems and classical archaeology, intaglios and cameos from Gaul in the third and fourth centuries AD, the Belgrade cameo, and reflections on gems depicting the contest of Athena and Poseidon.
