  • Thumbnail image of BERK-7EAB02

Record ID: BERK-7EAB02
Object type: FINGER RING
Broad period: ROMAN
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.
