The ring, found during excavations near the Roman site of Augusta Raurica, was presented on Thursday by the archaeological authorities of the Swiss canton of Bale-Campagne.

According to the experts, the owner of the ring buried the precious object underground during the civil wars of the Gallic Empire period, between AD 260 and 274.
