In a recent article, Roy Kotansky provides a fresh analysis of an ancient gemstone that that is regarded as giving one of the earliest visual depictions of the crucified Jesus: Roy Kotansky, “The Magic ‘Crucifixion Gem’ in the British Museum,” Greek, Roman and Byzantine Studies 57.3 (2017): 631-59 (the article available here). (There is an online image of the gemstone in question here.)(Note: the last link is not working, at least at the moment.) Professor Hurtado likes the article, but offers some corrections.
I have posted on the crucifixion gem here and (noting Dr. Kotansky's article) here.
