The image has been carved in intaglio, and would likely have been the seal ring of the original owner. UK ring size H.

The figure depicted on the bezel might be referred to the mythical Greek god Pan. In Ancient Greek religion and mythology Pan was the deity upon wildness and hunting, usually depicted as a half-human male figure having legs and horns of a goat and tail of a horse. A nice wearable piece with much history.
