Hello,
I just purchased an antique, carved cameo that looks like it may have Greek writing on the front.
Could someone tell me if this is truly Greek writing, and if so, what it says?

Here is the link to the auction - the pictures can be clicked on and made bigger.

Thanks so much for your help,
Clara

Clara,

Even in the enlarged images the text is hardly legible but I would not think it is Greek as i can see an aus ending.

Hello Spiros,
Thank you for taking a look at the writing - guess I'll have to keep looking to try and determine what language it is.
Happy Holidays,
Clara
