Description
Abstract and cryptic in its symbolism the face of this ring is engraved with a series of vertical and horizontal bands divided into three sections. In the center area the slightly thicker bands form columns and plinths like the entrance to a castle. Short horizontal bands fill the background, while vertical ones comprise the upper and lower areas. Simple in design, and yet mysterious, this ring was probably used as a seal to imprint its mark upon wax, proving ownership and authority of its owner. - (FJ.6371)
