Italic, ca. 5th to 3rd century BC. Bronze 'mace head'.
Diameter 33 mm., H. 20 mm.
AE. 41.32 g. A masculine ring forged from leaded bronze that was perhaps once part of a longer, tubular mace head. The circular accessory features a relatively smooth interior surface as well as columns of three pyramidal spikes surrounding the exterior. Mottled layers of brown and green patina have formed across the surfaces and imbue this ring with a stylish presentation.
