Ave!

Ring, Roman, Men's, Hippocampus Intaglio, ca. 2nd-3rd Cent

Copper alloy; 2.4gm/24mm - Ring size 10 1/4

Con/ As Cast and Engraved; Wearable, cleaned and waxed

Seller's Note/ In the photo, the engraved hippocampus on the bezel of this ring can be clearly seen in the photo. We have no doubt that it was used as a personal signet used to seal letters and documents. As to who wore it...perhaps a merchant mariner trying to stay on the good side of Neptune?
