This item is part of a collection from one of New York's largest volume collectors of artifacts and antiques. This collection has thousands of items so everything MUST GO FAST. There are deals to be had! This rare find is an Ancient Greek Iron ring. Its inner diameter is roughly 1.8 cm and fits the fourth finger as was common of the period. It features a faint but undeniably "evil eye" design on its face. It weighs approximately 14 grams. The face of the ring measures approx. 2 cm length by 1.5 cm width. It can be dated to the later period of the classic Ancient Greece due to the fact that such rings were worn as ornaments and didn't have a specific purpose. "Rings were mostly worn on the fourth finger (παράμεσος, Plut. Sympos. Fragm. lib. IV; Gellius, X.10).""The Lacedaemonians are said to have used iron rings at all times (Plin. H. N. XXXIII.4). With the exception perhaps of Sparta, the law does not appear to have ever attempted in any Greek state to counteract the great partiality for this luxury; and nowhere in Greece does the right of wearing a gold ring appear to have been confined to a particular order or class of citizens."
