Full image caption

Two Roman finger rings. Glass finger-ring, with hoop of glass and a flattened bezel with a dark purple setting, surrounded by a circular collar of yellow glass. The inset may once have had a impression of a profile, but this is now very worn. This, and the yellow spiral thread that is wound around the hoop, is coloured by the addition of lead-antimony. The setting is placed over the join to disguise it. On the right, silverfinger-ring. The hoop is wire of circular section, the ends of which form elaborate snakes' heads. Between the heads are soldered three pellets, each bordered by a thick beaded wire.
