Reproduction of a 19th-century silver ring. The original, one of the treasures brought to Greece by the Greek refugees from Asia Minor, is adorned with large ribbed corals and bears a relief ornament of opposed leaves. It was a votive offering to Saint Panteleimon, the healer of the sick at the Monastery of Prodromos outside Caesarea, where according to tradition, pilgrims flocked there in the 19th century to beseech a miraculous cure.
