2018 T786 Small gold finger ring comprised of a flattened piece of strip metal formed into a circular hoop that expands to slightly keeled rectangular shoulders and a wide flattened rectangular bezel.

Date: early Roman, 1st to 2nd centuries AD? Dimensions: Ext. d.: 18.5mm Int. d.: 16mm Width of bezel: 9mm Wt.: 5.17g Discussion: the ring is likely to be ancient, as indicated by the high purity of its gold, and is pr…

A gold bezel from a Roman finger-ring, consisting of an intaglio within an ovoid sheet-metal setting, with the hoop of the ring almost entirely absent. The intaglio is of a dark-blue and grey stone, probably nicolo, which is engraved with a standing figure of Mars facing right, wearing a short tunic, a plumed helmet and holding a spear out in front and a shield that is resting on the ground behind. The intaglio is set within a recessed collar, rather crudely finished, that steps down to a lower rim decorated with incised lines that form 'V' shapes which run around the entirety of the e…

Description: Gold strip bracelet fragment with square-end terminal, bent, distorted, and broken at the other end. One side is plain and undecorated, although faint impressions of the outer side decoration remain. The decorated side has a raised outer border, and a plain raised central line which divides the bracelet into two decorative zones. Each of these contains two rows of cable decoration in tight, neat rows, which was made using an 'S' shaped punch (this is only clear under magnification). At the end which is most damaged, there is heavy wear, inclduing nicks and striations whic…

Roman silver finger ring, plain oval hoop, broken and dented at the bottom. The flattened slightly swollen bezel widens to accommodate an oval pinky-red carnelian intaglio. The motif appears to be a very stylised pair of clasped hands (dextrarum iunctio). The wrists and palms are represented by a simple thick line with blocks at each end, and the fingers and thumbs by lightly incised lines. Analysis indicated a silver content of c. 93% and confirmed the gemstone as carnelian. Wt.: 3.77g Ext.d: 21.0 mm Int.d.: 17.9 mm Guiraud type 2e Date: 2nd to 3rd century AD

British Museum Curatorial Report: Roman silver finger-ring of 'keeled' type. The hoop is composed of a strip of flattened metal of rectangular section that has been folded over and joined at the bottom of the hoop (the join is visible under magnification). The hoop expands to 'keeled' shoulders and a flat rectangular bezel, which has traces of an ovoid collet for a setting, which is now missing.

Roman gold finger-ring, much bent and distorted but intact. The hoop consists of a flat strip of sheet-metal, faceted, that widens to triangular shoulders and a flat bezel. The bezel is set with a circular box setting with smaller 'satellite' settings on each corner, only one of which is undamaged. These were presumably originally set, but all the settings are now missing. The main circular setting has been shown by scientific analysis to have had a silver-alloy setting, now much degraded. Date: c. third century AD Wt.: 2.65g Discussion: a not dissimilar ring was discovered at Vindo…

Terminal of a silver bracelet in the form of a snake's head, extremely crudely worked. The head is entirely devoid of decoration, apart from a pair of circular indents to form the eyes; on one side there is an additional indent for reasons that are unclear. Date: possibly Roman, but snake bracelets of Roman date are not normally so crudely worked. Note: this item is probably more than 300 years old and composed of more than 10% precious metal so may qualify as treasure as stipulated in the Treasure Act 1996.

Simple one piece-brooch, Nauheim-derivative type with a flat broadly ovoid bow, undecorated, made of sheet metal, which narrows to a wire that forms a simple loop and the pin, both of circular cross-section. The catchplate is missing. Discussion: the brooch is so small it seems unlikely to have had much practical use, suggesting it was produced for symbolic reasons.

Rectangular silver intaglio detached from a 'Brancaster' type finger ring. The intaglio depicts a stylised bird standing right; the body and neck are composed of parallel incised lines, whilst the head is a simple punched pellet with the beak a crude 'L' shape pointing down towards a plant with a stem and four branches terminating in sub-circular leaves. Above the bird's back is a punched crescent with 3 punched dots. The whole motif is enclosed in a border of irregular pellets. Discussion: for a parallel see Henig 2007, no. 798, a ring from Droitwich (BM 1928,0714.1). L.: 10.5m…

A fragment of a silver spoon, almost certainly of Roman date. The fragment consists of part of the handle, of circular cross-section, in the form of unevenly twisted thick wire - the end of the handle is broken and missing. At the bowl end, the handle is square in section, and has a solid, quarter-circle offset with rat's tail onto a fragment of the bowl, probably oval or pear-shaped originally, but now almost entirely missing. The surface gives the appearance of having been heavily cleaned. Discussion: it is possible that the fragment has been deliberately created, i.e. that th…

Roman silver finger-ring, ovoid setting, the original inset (probably an intaglio) now missing. The hoop is broken and has been deliberately bent around and pushed up inside the bezel. The narrow hoop is of rectangular section and expands and swells slightly to triangular shoulders. The bezel has a slight recess on its inner side to accommodate the setting. The surface of the ring is heavily pitted, possibly due to recent cleaning. Date: c. 1st to 3rd century AD

A late Roman gold finger ring of unusual type. The hoop, which is broadly oval in profile, is decorated on the outer surface by a series of stepped mouldings, with the appearance of scales or even crude hands. These descend from the shoulder to the bottom of the hoop, five on each side, terminating at the foot with two further steps with grooves which run transverse to the other two sets. The bezel consists of three parallel ovular box settings, the outer two of which contain garnets. The central one is empty but perhaps originally contained a pearl; on each corner, this setting is fl…

Terminal of a cignus type Roman spoon in the form of a bird's head; the rest of the handle and the spoon bowl are missing. The head is long and narrow, with a flaring, round-ended beak. A groove around this forms the mouth, and has small jagged notches forming teeth. There is a humped brow over the eyes, and between the vertical wall of this and the horizontal beak is a ridged moulding. There is an eye to either side of the brow; on one side this consists of a circular groove with an S-shaped eyebrow above, but on the other side the eye is made from the curled end of the eyebrow.

Roman gold finger-ring. The hoop consists of a flattened ribbed strip which expands to openwork triangular shoulders decorated with inturned peltas flanking a central serrated rib topped by a pellet. The shoulders support an oval box setting with remains of a pinkish coloured substance, probably adhesive for a gem which is now missing. The ring is rather squashed. Discussion: although no exact parallel can be cited, a similar ring with openwork shoulders was found at the Roman fort of Vechten in the Netherlands (Henkel 1913, no. 251). The ring is of Guiraud type 3 E/F. Date: c. …
