This is a superb Roman gold signet ring, dating to the 3rd century A. The oval bezel is decorated with an incised standing figure (to be used for sealing as an intaglio), this figure is depicted as holding a whip and globe - thus in my opinion a likely representation of Sol (the Sun god) rather than Mercury (Hermes). This god was primarily worshipped in the latter Roman empire, mostly as a patron of Soldiers within the Mithraic Mysteries. Today this ring has come down to us in perfect condition for an ancient Roman gold signet ring, a perfect piece to be worn and used again today. 7 1/2 (US) P (UK). 19mm x 22mm x 1mm (bezel 9mm x 6mm x 1mm). Moreau Collection of Mithraic Art, Paris. This ring is unconditionally guaranteed to be an ancient original and to date from the period described.
