Seller: chrisvnh (2,707) 100%, Location: Keene, New Hampshire, Ships to: US, Europe, CA, JP, AU, Item: 122244670831 frenchyvnh Store ROMAN BRONZE RING Elaborate Soldier's Magic War God "Mars" Size 6 Average Opening = 16.53mm Antiquities Corner is proud to present this fine historical artifact for your collecting pleasure. These artifacts were originally designed to be enjoyed by their owners and I have tried to return these treasures to a state which will both charm and enchant their new owners and show the skill and craftsmanship of old. REAL NICE!!! This ring was found at a Roman site in Ancient Moesia and dates from 100 - 300 AD This is one noticeable ring, that's for sure! This ring has a bezel that measures 11mm X 11mm. The design makes use of the traditional concentric circle with the deep central dot motif. While this decorating technique was used for magical purposes . There are five of the circles on this ring's bezel face. These rings were originally made as votive rings to seek the aid of the gods and goddesses and in later period were bought in the hopes of warding off the "Evil Eye". The number 5 is of special significance and is associated with "Mars" the God of War. It is interesting to note that in later years, the five circles would be put on the bezel in the shape of a Cross, instead of the way they look on a gambling die. When done as the Cross, it stands for the 5 Wounds of Christ and when they were done this way, for the God Mars. A coincidence? Look at the condition of this ring in the picture up above. I was able to bring it back to life almost as the original maker intended it. It was most likely made as a votive offering. The color and shine of this piece are 1st rate as you can plainly see in my pictures. The ring does have a definite decorative quality to it and will surely be noticed wherever it is worn. This ring is an excellent example of the period's craft. The color and shine of this ring are SUPERB and this ring will make a welcome addition to ANY collection. Look at the picture above and you'll see how solid the design of this ring is. The picture above gives you a close up view that shows the quality of the rings that I am offering lately. ________________________________________________________________ This ring is Round & Sound and 100% wearable This ring has a Wonderful Golden color to it with faint patina traces remaining This ring is not a perfect circle but measures right around a size 6 American Average Opening measures 16.53mm ________________________________________________________________ This ring is a TRUE GEM and would make a wonderful addition to any collection or as a piece of wearable ANCIENT ART!
