 28 125

Byzantine / Western Roman Empire

The ring from Griffins’ collection kept in Metropolitan Museum.
Material: silver / gilded silver, niello.

The ring belonged to Leontios of the province of Opsikion, in what is now northwestern Turkey. Patrikios and komes were Roman titles that shifted in meaning during the Byzantine period; it seems likely that Leontios was the governor of the province or a high-ranking general.
