Description: One of the few Roman-era artefacts from the Isle of Man, this ring has eight indentations on the top which probably originally contained blue and red enamel.

Her father said it was a piece of pipe, but she kept it as her treasure until her death in 2008 when her family donated it to the National Collections.
