Lead and Iron Ring?


Jose G:
Hello everione!

I upload some photos of which it could be a ring made of iron and lead. In the pictures we can see an  round iron ring and and flat lead area. The weight is about 34gr. Could it be so much for a ring?

I would be very grateful if anyone could give your opinion

Thanks in advane


I really don't think this is a finger ring.

It is likely a ring anchored in lead and meant to tie something to.

It reminds me a bit of terret rings which were used on carts, wagons and chariots, though cruder.  But this might be a coincidence.

Thanks so much SC, I think you are right. Sometimes imagination goes ahead :)
