This unusual 'double' ring rotates so that Alexander or Athena can be uppermost.
The 'Alexander' side is of a reproduction of a silver tetradrachm minted during the reign of Lysimachos of Thrace, in the last quarter of the fourth century BC, a successor (and boyhood friend) of Alexander the Great.
The head is that of Alexander himself, depicted with the ram's horns of Zeus Ammon (the god whom Alexander had claimed as his father), indicating his posthumous deification.
The 'Athena' side depicts helmeted Athena.
