Superb green patina. Still with some earth deposits remaining on the surface. Wearable and intact!!!NOTE:Engraved intaglio designs cut directly in a metal bezel were originally intended for use as seals, and that function was still important throughout the Roman period, and the tiny image of a deity or the familiar attribute of a god or goddess carried on the person would also have had a powerful apotropaic force, and this was an equally compelling reason for the wearing of rings with engraved bezels in the Roman Empire.
