5th‐4th century B.C.
W. 8.3 cm
A gold wire formed into a regular spiraling design has been bent into a round bottomed "ω" shape and its ends thinned. The size of the ring can be set by where they ends are tied. This work is thought to date from around the Achaemenid period, but its style is extremely unusual.
