Roman gold finger ring of keeled type. A plain sharply faceted, almost triangular in section, hoop widens into triangular shoulders with an openwork design down both edges, now much worn, but probably originally a stylized foliate design. Between the shoulders is a prominent battered oval, or possibly octagonal, bezel containing a dark blue Nicolo, or Nicolo paste, intaglio. The intaglio portrays a standing male figure looking left with objects held in each hand, probably a depiction of Mercury holding a caduceus (a staff with two snakes winding around it) and a money-bag (Henig 19…

Broad period: BRONZE AGE
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Looped palstave of Gr.III (Low-flanged, broad-bladed) type (following Schmidt and Burgess 1981). It dates broadly to the Middle Bronze Age and more specifically to the Taunton/early Penard phases (1400-1200 BC) (Needham et al. 1997). This is a complete palstave with leaf-shaped flanges that rise from the septum below the butt to about the height of the stop. It has a long slender butt, with a straight end and a thick septum (c.10mm). In plan, the flanges form a straight, rectangular stop ridge and taper in very slightly toward the butt end. A thick side loop is positioned on one si…

Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Powys
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Gold ring in the form of a plain broad band of flattened D cross section. The inner face is engraved with legend X I LYKE MY CHOYS in Roman capitals. The hoop has an internal diameter of 19mm; external diameter of 21.6mm; band width 5.7mm; band thickness of 0.9mm; weight 6.41g. The finger ring from Llangunllo has a form which is hard to date, existing in the fifteenth century, and continuing up to the present. Dating is therefore reliant on the legend and the style of lettering, which is typical of a seventeenth-century date. There are a number of variants of this inscription rec…
