Bequest of David P. Harris ('46), 2020
From the collector's records: "The ring's oval bezel has an engraved rendering of a human figure standing beside a small cross-topped structure. It is said to represent Mary at the well. The back portion of the ring's hoop is faceted on the outside. The piece is thought to have come from Jordan."
The scene may represent the Marys at the tomb; cf. Byzanz: Das Licht aus dem Osten (Paderborn, 2001), p. 332
