The Antiquities Authority described the gold ring as a “remarkable and rare find”.

This is how the Israel Antiquities Authority described a Roman-era gold ring with an image used by early Christians to symbolize Jesus that archaeologists found off the coast of Israel on the Mediterranean.

The agency said that the jewel has a green gemstone carved in the shape of a shepherd carrying a sheep on his shoulders.

In the Bible, Jesus describes himself as “Good Shepherd”.
