Silver finger-ring of thick wire round in section. Long oval bezel is engraved with central male (?) figure walking to the right flanked on either side by protective winged deity, Isis. On either side of the goddesses is a human figure with what appears to be a hand raised in front of his face. On the far left is an altar; bezel repaired. Silver and gold finger-ring. Gold-plated thick silver wire, round in section, with ends which taper towards a long oval bezel of silver which has raised gold rim. The bezel is engraved with two winged figures on either side of what is probably the child Horus on a lotus flower, with other figures in the field. Hoop damaged; corroded. Pale green glazed composition intaglio, perhaps cut from a scarab (back not visible), set in gold signet ring. Ring has thin strip hoop, sheet across the back of the bezel, with the bezel edges overlapping the intaglio. Device consists of Horus seated on a lotus flower; he wears a necklet, holds a flail over his right shoulder and brings his left hand to his mouth. Pairs of papyri on short and long stalks spring from below. Above is a sun-disc flanked by lines representing uraei. Line border; sintered quartz.
