Record ID: CAM-86B0D4
Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Roman silver finger ring, bent and misshapen. Originally a circular hoop of rectangular section, swelling to one sharply carinated shoulder and another plain. There is an ovular bezel which is plain and undecorated. The edges of the ring are very crudely finished. Discussion: the ring seems to have been unfinished before loss or discard. Date: c. 2nd to 3rd century AD Note: this item is made substantially of silver and is more than 300 years old, and thus qualifies as treasure as stipulated in the Treasure Act 1996.

The find consists of one end of a cigar-shaped ingot of roughly plano-convex section, which has broken across a deep flaw. There is a fresh nick on one side, however caused.

Ceramic head of a woman, possibly Roman. In style,, it resembles the faces seen on face-neck flagons of the third to fourth century AD, however the fabric of the object is coarse and is likely to be of building material type rather than vessel fabric. The head has centrally parted hair and is wearing a headdress although the highly abraded nature of the object has obscured the detail of this. Likewise, the features of the face are visible but the detail is lost to abrasion. The object measures 56mm in length, 49mm maximum width and is 14mm thick.

Silver gilt spoon terminal comprising a small seated animal on a moulded capital. The figure is crudely cast and worn and now resembles a small dog, but the type would seem to be that of the lion sejant affonté even though the animal does not appear to have a mane. Three 15th Century examples of lion sejant spoons are recorded and the type was a popular form made in the West Country in the 16th Century and also in Norwich into the early 17th Century. On balance this example is probably a late 16th Century example but could possibly date from the early 17th Century, perhaps made in No…

Silver finial in the form of a pine cone, broken off at the base, where it would have joined onto another element. It has been suggested that this may be a knop from a spoon. If this is so, the best comparison known to me is a spoon with enamelled bowl in the British Museum, P&E 1899, 12-9,3, inscribed AVE MARIA, which has been dated to the late 15th Century. The knop on this spoon is more rounded in form and is engraved with rings of regular lines rather than with the much cruder hatching seen on this object. However this object may not be a knop but may have served as some other kin…

Gold foliate accessory. It is made of fine pieces of gold, is broken in places and is therefore very delicate. Within a small circular recess to the front and bottom of this piece is green enamel. The presence of four loops at the corners suggests that it may have been sewn onto fabrics, though it was more than likely part of a necklace or bracelet. It is in the style of 19th-century revivalist jewellery and therefore is not classed as Treasure.
