Gold finger ring. A thin cast band of rectangular section bearing an externally incised inscription. This reads: + E D O + O N : T F + T R A N + A I F A, with heavily seriffed cross potent punctuation and unbarred A's, some with a vertical stroke in the place of the bar. The style of lettering broadly resembles that of the Short Cross coinage of 1180-1247, and probably points to a date in the first half of the 13th century. This reporter cannot venture upon the interpretation of the legend, though at this date it is likely to be Latinate. Malcolm Jones kindly comments on the reading as…

Hollow gold finger ring decorated with incised lines and now slightly squashed. A photograph of the ring has been examined by curators at the British Museum who suggest (pers comm 13/02/2018) it post-dates 1718 and therefore does not need to reported under the Treasure Act 1996.

It is decorated around the entire outside with a repeating mtif of a branch (diagonal line with two pairs of angled side branches) alternating with a sideways S, one end of which is crossed by a short sec…
