A post medieval gold finger ring with four faceted stones that may - or may not - be emeralds. A fifth socket, which presumably held a further stone, is empty.

While this find was reported as possible treasure, the decision of the relevant curator at the British Museum was that this is not treasure, due to the style of the rin…

The gem was cut with an outwardly bevelled edge. The subject is a cow, a popular subject from the Augustan period onwards, though I would date this to the late 1st century/first half of the 2nd century AD. Comparanda: see M.Henig, …

The inner face of the band is flat while the outer face is slightly convex, giving the finger ring a D-shaped section. There is no inscription. The finger ring has a rough brown surface with light green patches of copper-corrosion. It is 18.72 mm in diame…
