FINGER RING

Unique ID: BERK-F51C2C

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

An incomplete cast copper alloy finger ring dating to the Roman period. The hoop is missing but the bezel and a short section of the shoulders survives. The bezel is oval with a relief moulded cross resulting in four cells. The remains of enamel can be seen within the cells although it is too degraded to establish the original colour. A similar finger ring which can be found on the database is DENO-98A7F3. This style of ring dates from the first or second century AD (c. AD 43-200).
