Rare large and heavy silver seal ring with a lion engraved, Achaemenid Empire c. 550–330 BC.

As the first known world empire, the Achaemenid Empire stretched over most of the whole known world at it's height in antiquity - from the middle east to parts of Greece. Interesting ring, very attractive with the strong Achaemenid style lion and the archaic design of the ring itself.

Size: 21-22 mm.

Condition: Intact and wearable, though with an old repair to the ring. The ring was made with less pure silver so that it's somewhat corroded, the bezel was made in better silver, and is in very nice sharp condition.

An important ring for any collector of ancient rings.
