Childs gold ring

Period:
Roman Period
Description:
Discovered on the surface near Kirkmahoe, the upper surface of this ring is decorated with three mounted heads. Due to its small oval size, this is most likely a child's gold finger ring. The upper surface is decorated with three prominant oval shapes - possibly human faces, or skulls, but unfortunately they are too worn for us to be certain.
