Roman Tintinnabulum, C. 100 BC - 400 AD
In ancient Rome, a tintinnabulum was a wind chime or assemblage of bells. A tintinnabulum often took the form of a bronze phallic figure or fascinum, a magico-religious phallus thought to ward off the evil eye and bring good fortune and prosperity.
Tintinnabula were hung in the doorways of houses and shops, often together with a lamp, as a protection against evil spirits. The name comes from the inclusion of bells that would have hung from suspension loops as seen in this example.
