Ivory ring: UC 2382

UC 2382

Ivory ring with portrait in relief of Ptolemaic Queen with melon hair-dress, perhaps represents Queen Bernice II. Ring shank broken. The piece is perhaps posthumous. There are several gaming counters similar in style, dating to about 50 BC - 70 AD.

Walker/Higgs 2001: 63, no. 32 (the ring); 170 (the gaming counters)
