Keywords: jewelry, Achaemenid motifs, cast-iron technology, Anatolian-Syrian coast, art, iconography, production
Three metal finger rings were found in a repository in a burial cave, excavated at South Horbat Tittora. The rings are all-metal products, and they are relatively well-preserved. They were dated to the Persian period (fifth–fourth centuries BCE), based on their shape, decoration and excavated parallels. They comprise a welcome addition to the relatively small number of all-metal rings from the Persian period that has been found in the country.
