Engraved horizontally to the centre with an oval ropework border encompassing the letters 'TOT' abbreviated from the Celtic god Toutatis, flanked by broad integrated shoulders which flow through to a tapering D-shape shank. Tested silver, approximately 6.50 grams in weight, circa 2nd-4th century AD.

Accompanied by documentation from the Portable Antiquities Scheme stating that this ring was reportedly from an old collection and likely was found in the East Midlands, possibly Lincolnshire.
