BYZANTINE INFANT'S RING C.500-800 AD
The smallest ring we have offered! Size totally off the chart-several sizes smaller than a US #1, about half the width of a penny, 3/8" inside diameter. Bronze with raised flat shoulders and oval top cut with a line matrix, clandestine representative of the cross. Well preserved. Recovered from the burial of an infant who perished (and perhaps was born) on the pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
