Copper-alloy ring of uncertain date and function, probably dating within the Roman to early medieval period (c. 43 - 1066 AD). The ring is formed from a thin copper-alloy band of uneven width.

The outer surface of the ring is decorated with linear grooves, pairs of which cover the width of the band. Both surfaces are greatly obscured by corrosion, resulting in a patchy dark green patina. The ring seems to have had a decorative function but it is not clear wha…
