This is the third and penultimate volume dedicated by the Louvre museum, it is a collection of 28 mirrors "a codolo", that is, those mirrors provided with a short handle destined to be inserted in a cover that are differentiated from those so called "a manico fuso" studied in the first two volumes. Twenty four mirrors (of which three that are not included in Gerhard's collection) are rich in mythological content. Aside from the usual typological depiction's, there are a series of studies focusing specifically on the iconography.
