    My precious roman gold carnelian seal intaglio...an amazing experience...

    Hello my friends...

    10/10/2010 Sunday I went with a friend in the neighboring county to about 55 km from me in a location where we've found a few days before the traces of ancient battles fought in medieval times but also high cliffs around lies a pasture where we've found arrows and spears, but also ancient and medieval brooches, pieces of armor of all time...Has appeared a signal on the screen nonferrous metal currency possible gold in Garrett 2500 GTI and depth of 6 inches but I have no hope of digging thought something...I thought it happens every time to find a beer bottle cap and when I saw the side of a glittering ring ... I could not believe I found a gold ring with carnelian seal Roman intaglio engraving that was a scene in depth the battle between mythological characters Hercules and Anteu...



    It was in perfect condition as if someone placed it there in the ground a few minutes in front of me...
    In Romania never found something like that and I still do not believe it 3 days after the discovery...
    Before I give the ring specialists took photos that we show with you...

    If that were a UK find, I wouldn't be surprised if the British Museum would keep it & pay a good price as well

    No, finds of this Quality are out of the blue & really reminds us why we do this strange hobby

    That would be a £1000 (easy) Ring in the UK, its easy worthy of publishing in any book on Roman Antiquities

    He has all the info already other than its circa 1st Century AD (maybe early 2nd). ie. its a Solid Gold Roman Ring with a Carnelian gemstone.
