Description This ring has a hollow hoop and an oblong bezel engraved with a griffin in profile, on the left, and a lion in profile, on the right, facing each other. The animals are separated and surrounded by a segmented line. Rings like this one are ultimately of Egyptian origin but were popular in Etruria in the late 7th and 6th centuries BCE.
