Silver ring.<br>The ring is not completely round, but consists of numerous angular parts. Neither outside nor inside seams are visible. On the outside marks of hammer blows, on the inside traces of filing.<br>
Outside a [[index::AV-1|circumferential inscription]].<br>The ring was discovered with other findings like a fibula or a coin by a private person at [[index::Flur Moosholz|Moosholz]] near to [[index::Nußdorf]]. In the immediate vicinity of the ring was also found the fibula which dates to the late [[index::Hallstatt period]], to the beginning of the 5th century BC. Consequently the ring could also date to the beginning of the 5th century BC, but it is not a constrained dating because silver objects of the [[index::Hallstatt period]] are very rare until now and other objects which date to the following period were also discovered at the find place. Moreover there are no parallel objects with regard to the form of the ring north of the Alps.<br>Predominantly the objects discovered at [[index::Flur Moosholz|Moosholz]] are fragmentary resp. demonstrate an intentional destruction. Therefore the find place could be interpreted as burnt offering site.<br>Autopsied by the ''Thesaurus Inscriptionum Raeticarum'' in May 2014.
