By the beginning of the 15th century, when a new interest in the classical past and its relics arose among Italian humanists and collectors, Greek and Roman engraved gems and coins became part of every antiquarian collection. Almost daily, specimens of antique cameos, carnelians, sardonyx, and other varieties of hardstone intaglios were recovered from the ruins of ancient Rome, while other pieces reached the hands of Western collectors from the classical sites of the eastern Mediterranean.
