GREEK. Hellenistic silver ring. 3rd-1st centuries BC. (16mm wide x 24mm high; weight: 14.33g). With large plaque depicting a veiled and draped bust of a woman left. Well carved but worn. Silver crystallization present on much of the piece.

Such rings are generally thought to depict a Ptolemaic queen, although the depictions seem rather generic and do not closely match identifiable numismatic portraits. See J. Spier, Ancient Gems and Finger Rings: Catalogue of the Collections, The J. Paul Getty Museum (1992), pp. 48-50, for comparable.
