    Roman Villa Site producing Bronze, Silver and 1700 year old Roman Gold Ring

    Today i went back to the Villa Site where i found the Wolfhead Pendant. It was plowed yesterday and i had time till 5.00pm today. I was detecting the field while the farmer was planting potatoes...
    It was well worth the effort. Still have to dig nails, the site is far from being clean. So lots of nails, lead, some scrappies, one Denarius, a beautiful condition Dupondius(?) (not identified yet), found on the last row for the day and as nearly the last signal 20 metres from the truck the golden Ring. Other finds were a french Regimental button, roman sandal nail, roman bronze nails, one decorated, a first for me.
    I talked a bit to the farmer, thanked him for his cooperation, showed the finds from the day and was invited to come back after harvest.
    Here are the pics:

    I missed the coins in my excitement, and now I'm drooling remembering the good old days, on my villa field....you should get four or five years out of this field. If you meen the coin on the left (3rd & 2nd last pictures) is denarius....it looks like a Siliqua, Valens I think of the top of my head....

    Hi SS This is a very small ring too, i guess a womans ring from size. I'll take it to the jeweler to get it back in shape too. Bad is a cut on top, otherwise no more damage exept the bending.

    Westfront....you need to post more pictures of the Gold ring (different angles) and some history about it, date style e.c.t, I can help with this, if you wish. Then I think the banner train will stop by

    I'll take some pics with the good camera later, these are just made with the cell phone.... Unfortunately i only know that the style is late roman (for our area) and not much more. Any help is welcome!

    The coins do indicate a late 4th century villa, but the ring could date anytime during the roman empire, the design is either classical, or even the wife of an emperer.
