This is a nice ancient Roman gold finger ring, dating to the 3rd century A.D. It is of a Henig type VIII, with keeled shoulders and an oval bezel. It is a very small size, perhaps intended for a child or as a votive offering to adorn a statue/figurine of a god. The ring is intact but slightly distorted.

A good wearable ancient Roman ring in excavated condition.
