Oval ring of the type known as a 'magical gem', inscribed on both sides with Greek characters. On one side, the design shows an anguipede, a divinity with legs in the form of serpents. His head is turned to his right and he has his right hand bent and raised, holding a whip. With his left hand he holds a shield. The reverse side has inscribed Greek characters that are undecipherable and there are also letters on the edges of the oval.
