Found a 10k gold ring in a park behind an old shut down psychiatric hospital. Black onyx intaglio. I was told from a member of a Facebook group thats it's probably early 1900s.

A Romanised image, similar to Apollo but not a match.
Hard to date, as these have been popular/in & out of fashion for awhile, but early 1900s or late 1800s seems possible.

Hallmarks?
