A choice example of a late Byzantine-early Medieval/Islamic archers ring, 11th.-13th. cent. AD . Worn on the thumb to protect the skin when the bow string was drawn. Decorated with incised floral decoration.
The ring only semi-cleaned and can be improved greatly! The material is silver or base-silver alloy.
Ring-size: 22 mm. and almost perfectly round like a modern ring, not compressed so easier to wear.
