Description

Posy ring 'BE x NOT x IDEIL'. A smoothly conforming yellow gold D-shape band, inscribed to the interior with 'BE x NOT x IDEIL', the I and the L are joined together by the upper and lower cross bars on the I, so it is possible it is 'BE x NOT x IDELL', approximately 2mm in width, approximately 0.91g in weight. Tested yellow gold, circa 16-17th century. Accompanied by documentation from the Portable Antiquities Scheme stating that this ring was found in Minster Lovell, Oxfordshire, UK in 2015. It is recorded with the Portable Antiquities Scheme under reference LON-FE313A; and disclaimed under the Treasure Act 1996, reference 2016 T489. This charming and unusual posy is not listed in the most comprehensive catalogue of posy mottos, see Evans, J., 'English Posies and Posy Rings.'
