Roman lead seal '
Roman lead seal c. 3rd century
REGIONIS ELLESPONL - ACA - E; Ram standing right
18mm

The inscription reads "Regionis Hellespon(ti)acae" indicating this seal belonged to the region of the Hellespont. The ram is probably a reference to the legend of the Golden Fleece, that took place, for a part, in this region.
