Ancient Jewelry
Hellenistic Greek, Bronze Relief Ring Fragment, Eastern Mediterranean, 3rd - 1st Century B.C.

|Jewelry|, |Hellenistic| |Greek,| |Bronze| |Relief| |Ring| |Fragment,| |Eastern| |Mediterranean,| |3rd| |-| |1st| |Century| |B.C.|
This bronze ring fragment is very similar to the referenced ring fragment in the British Museum, seen to the right. It is clearly the same woman depicted and they are very likely from the same engraver and workshop. The British Museum piece is similarly broken and missing almost the entire hoop. In fact, all known examples of this ring type are broken in this same manner. Perhaps wearing the ring indicated the wearer had the authority of the queen and these rings were officially recalled and made unwearable when this authority expired.ring_fragment
