Late Victorian Russian Barbarians Ring

$500.00


Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1890

An interesting late Victorian period Russian ring crafted from steel that has been given a dark blue tint. It's adorned with Cyrillic lettering which I can only partially translate (and even then I'm not sure...) Hoping the Instagram hive mind can help here........ I understand the XP stands for "Christ", the My might mean "We" and the long word is "Barbarians". Which leaves Be and woB (or wcB or something). It's also possible that some of the text is in English, the Be My part in particular......... any thoughts?
