Circular copper-alloy ring, 21 mm in diameter. Rounded in section, 2.5 x 1.5 mm; otherwise featureless, with an even olive green patina. It is comfortable as a finger-ring and could well have been used as such. Dating is difficult as there are so few diagnostic features, but the patina looks of some age.
