Description: 1st-3rd century AD. A gold ring with a tapering shank and oval bezel set with a chalcedony intaglio engraved with the image of Victory standing and holding a spear, wings outspread to the back. 3.22 grams, 20.78mm overall, 21.19mm internal diameter (approximate size British X, USA 11 3/4, Europe 26.29, Japan) (3/4"). From an important English collection; acquired in the 1990s. The stone was examined in detail by Dr. Bonewitz who observed: 'The chalcedony has a slightly brownish cast, and takes some of its colour from the gold backing. The carving is of a good standard.'

Condition Report: Very fine condition. A large wearable size.
