Went back to the No. 1 field today and standing the storm was worth every minute. Barely could hear the signals in the headphones...
This site isn't producing much but the finds are excellent. Gridding the area of the main building yields an ok Sestercius and a stunning ring. Roman gold is very hard to come by and this is the second gold ring from this site!

Difficult to say, romans had no markings or makers stamps. From design it's similar to the other ring from that site and all coins found are 3th-4th century. So my estimate is 1700 years.

Wow, incredible for sure. I do believe a gold ring with that much history tied to it really does belong on the banner list. Finds like this only get posted once or twice a year at best. Congrats again and my vote is going in.
All the best to you Westfront,

Update straightened

Short stop at the jeweler this morning, took him a minute converting a piece of gold into a ring again. The plate has a bend but isn't fallen off :headbang:
Thanks for the votes guys!

I don't know what that key-like item is in the fifth picture...but it reminds me of a broken hand-cuff key.

Oh and nice gold.
