Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A copper alloy incomplete unidentified object of uncertain date. The ring is circular with a smooth slightly convex interior wall. The outer surface is angled at both sides to create a transverse ridge around the ring which ends just before the opening. The ridge then flattens towards the opening. The ring is incomplete and both ends are broken. It appears that it may have had a mechanism to open it or it had only a narrow strip of copper alloy completing the circle at the broken ends. The ring weighs 4g and measures 17.64mm in length, 13.43mm in width, 2.8mm in height and 3.94mm in thickness.
