County: Oxfordshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A near-complete Roman copper alloy finger ring, dating from the second to third centuries AD. The finger ring is a Guiraud Type 4; the loop is oval in profile with a flat rectangular section. The bezel is sub-triangular in profile with a flet apex, although this is now broken. The top of the bezel has a rectangular void in which the remains of a white paste-like substance is visible - this may have been the adhesive for securing a glass or stone insert in place, although no trace of the latter survives. The dimensions for length and diameter relate in the internal loop measurements.

Treasure Case 2000 T199 Date: First quarter of the 7th century Description: Boar's head terminal made of gold and inlaid with garnets. The board's head is damaged at the back where it has been torn away from a larger object. Its structure is complex: the shape of the head is built up using deep cells with robust walls which are soldered onto a sturdy base-plate. The cells are largely covered by sheet gold except where they contain small, well cut garnets which are skillfully used to create the boar's characteristic features: the tusks are clearly defined with triangular garnets,…
