Copper alloy posy ring, a fair amount of gilding remaining on the inner band which is punched with the inscription - in Roman capitals - DEALE TRVLY. Were the inscription inscribed then a 17th century date would be likely but the use of puncheons to form the letters may place this ring later, in the 18th century. However, posy rings do no seem to have been produced much after the first half of the 18th century and so a date of c.1650-1750 is probably most appropriate for this example. There is the trace of a join in the band. Inner diameter 18.5mm, weight 2.68g.

Slender silver finger ring with transverse grooves flanking a small (4mm x 5mm) rectangular bezel, five on one side and four on the other. This bezel is engraved in intaglio with a bird, aligned with the band of the ring, probably intended to represent a cockerel. Cockerels were sacred to Mercury and this may denote a religious significance although the piece could equally have functioned simply as a signet. The form of the ring is late Roman and a 4th-century date is likely. Internal diameter approximately 20mm, weight 2.05g. The band of the ring, which is D-sectioned, is broken at o…

A heavy silver ring (13.99g) with rounded shoulders and a slightly raised flat bezel that roughly corresponds to Henig's type XI. The bezel is mounted with a bright orange-red cornelian depicting (in impression) a goat kneeling to the right and looking back over his shoulder at a single branched palm tree beneath which he sits. The type is similar to a number of cornelians recorded by Martin Henig in his corpus. Those animals are described as stags and all face left, not right, but they still furnish the closest parallels to this example (Henig p167, nos. 616-9). They are dated to …

Copper alloy finger ring with faint traces of gilding around the bezel and on the inner band. The ring, a solid example with heavy shoulders and corresponding to Henig's type X and XI, is a typical later second to third century form. The bezel is set with a dark red cornelian intaglio with a flat surface (10mm x 8mm). This gem is engraved with a figure of Fortuna standing (in impression) left and holding a cornucopia and rudder. The rather crudely engraved figure accords well with the date of the ring. Figures of Fortuna are common on intaglios, several being listed in Henig's corpu…
