Roman intaglio carnelian ring of goddess Athena/Minerva. Found in Belgium with metal detector in 1986. Returned to me by Belgian archaeological officials. Stone was in an iron setting when found, later set in 18kt gold by master Dutch jeweler. Belgian archaeologist dated it to 100 AD +/- 100 years. Probably carved in Rome. Museum quality piece. Not for sale--I'm just showing off!

Superb capture of the very ancient Roman 'carnelian intaglio ring,' David. Excellent color & clarity with your Oly E510. Your were very fortunate to find, such a wonderful relic, with the metal detector. And, I must say, the jeweler did 'an exquisite workmanship,' in setting it in precious 18 kt gold. This is truly a 'keepsake & treasure,' that You will always cherish. Thanks, for sharing this lovely antiquity, which is 'one of my varied interests.'
Ciao...Pietro
