A very fine Ancient Roman gold finger ring featuring a circular hoop, now slightly disfigured, with shoulders that expand outwards towards an oval bezel. A carnelian intaglio has been placed in the centre and has been carefully carved with the profile of the god Mars, facing left. The young, clean shaven male wears an Attic helmet with a plume of feathers, typical attributes of Mars. The ring comes with a modern impression.
