ROMAN PROSTITUTE’S RING 1st-3rd CENTURY AD SIZE 7 ¼
Prostitutes in the Roman Empire were very young and often slaves. Plain band topped with garish stepped pyramidal top mount comically emulating the stone of the quality rings worn by cultured women. Prostitution was practiced openly in ancient Rome and some of the best evidence is in the remains of Pompeii. Surface textured from burial. Professionally refurbished with the gold surface restored. Gift boxed with certification of authenticity.
