Is This Roman Ring Real?

(1/3) > >>

Tash D:
I've just started expanding my antiques collection to include ancient artefacts. This is my first ring that I've bought, I got it from eBay. I don't have much knowledge on the topic yet, so could someone please tell me if they think this ring is authentic? It was listed as an Ancient Roman Ring 200-400AD

Thanks! I'll have to look into Medieval rings and see what comes up. From my research on the design it comes up as being a 'Roman Soildier's Sun God Sol Invocto' ring I think

Akropolis:
The ring appears to have “bronze disease.” If so, and the seller didn’t tell you about it, I suggest you return it.
Take a wooden toothpick and poke a bright green spot. If light green powder comes off, it is bronze disease.

I am afraid that that description is a pure fantasy.
