Carnelian Intaglio Signet Ring |

A ROMAN GOLD AND CARNELIAN FINGER RING CIRCA 1ST CENTURY B.C. The hollow hoop rounded on the exterior, flat on the interior, expanding to the shoulders, the oval bezel set with a flat stone engraved with a theater mask in profile to the left, a fish in the field below

Gold ring recovered from the wreck of the pirate ship Whydah. Some believe the cryptic letters are the abbreviation for a Welsh “good luck” wish. Others speculate that they may be of African origin. Another theory has it that the ring once belonged to a Royal Navy seaman named Teye, who later turned pirate. Photo by Bill Curtsinger ©National Geographic
