Description

An impressive man's seal ring depicting a powerful galloping horse over a kylix. Masculine in scale. It could also be used as a pendant.
We believe this ring originated in Scythia which was a region of Eurasia in the classical era, encompassing parts of Central Asia, Eastern Europe and the northern Caucasus. The Scythians inhabited the territory from the 8th BCE to the 2nd CE.
