Roman - Egyptian Gold Ring

A Roman Ptolemaic Gold signet ring engraved with the image of a standing Egyptian
goddess, probably Isis. With her stretched arm she is holding an Ureaus serpent
crowned with the sun disc. Above her head the Isis crown.
The ring has obviously been worn a lot in ancient times as image is a little burred.
For comparison see a ring with nearly identical image : F.H. Marshall
