Looking for the realized and estimated price?

Description: Sold without reserve.

Possibly 7th-8th century.

The complex letter monograms seen on these ancient seal rings are often nominative or Christian in meaning. Here the encrypted letters on the circular disk bezel read as E, M, N, P and probably belong to the name of the owner, and a cross in the lower right quadrant expresses his Christian belief.

When you leave a bid in advance of the auction, submit your maximum. Invaluable will bid on your behalf as much as necessary to ensure that you meet the reserve price or that you remain in the lead, up to your maximum. The bidder who has submitted the highest bid wins the lot, provided the bid exceeds the reserve price.

Provenance: formerly the property of a European gentleman

Dimensions: Circumference 50.5 mm.; US size 5.5, UK size L
