Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Dorset
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A copper alloy finger ring, probably Roman in date, consisting of a flat strip of metal bent into a penannular ring with both terminals narrowing to a point and overlapping slightly. The pointed ends suggest this could have been used as an earring, but they may also simply be narrowed to fit together when worn on the finger and penannular to allow for expansion. The ring may also been made from a broken fragment of a bracelet which are often penannular in the Roman period. The outer face of the hoop is decorated with three horizontal concentric grooves which converge towards the ends o…
