An ancient Roman solid gold garnet ring with engraved eagle (aquila) holding a laurel wreath in his beak.
The eagle was used as the official emblem of Rome and was the symbol of the Roman military, representing power and strength. Each legion carried one eagle standard (aquila) and the loss of the eagle was considered a terrible omen. This particular ring likely belonged to a member of the military elite.
