A gold early medieval finger ring of the Viking period (c. 1000-1100). The ring is made of a curved rod with a rectangular cross-section and bevelled edges.

County: Lincolnshire

Lead possible weight. Cast plano-convex object with a small dimple on its convex side. Patinated. The mass may suggest this to have represented one half of an ore/ora or three Viking Age units of 4.07gms. A conical ribbed playing piece or weight of similar mass (NLM-C98990) was reported as from the same general location, and indeed this object might qualify as one of the plainer pieces used in the game of Hnafetafl. Suggested date: Early Medieval, 850-950 Diameter: 16.5mm, Thickness: 8.3mm, Weight: 12.62gms

Object type: GAMING PIECE

Lead possible playing piece. Cast conical to pentagonal-section flat-based object with five moulded ribs converging at its apex. The ribs may have distinguished this from plainer pieces used in the board game Hnafetafl, perhaps as a 'king'. Its mass also equates to one half ore/ora, or three Viking -Age units as used for transactions in silver bullion, most closely matching that system employed in Scandinavia based on a module of 4.07gms. The object could have served as both weight and game piece, especially if such games were to be played for silver stakes. A slightly heavier version …

Lead possible weight. Cast and possibly originally discoid weight, either flattened or trimmed to a hexagonal form. Patinated. The mass may suggest this to have represented three Viking-Age units of 4.07gms as used for silver bullion transactions, or one half of an ora/ore, the contemporary equivalent of an [underweight] ounce. Qualifying this suggestion, it should be acknowledged that examples of values of odd numbers of units are fairly rare in what was effectively a duodecimal system.
