The Atlantis ring is a band onto which a series of geometrical shapes were engraved.
They are as follows: 2 triangles, 6 small and 3 larger rectangles, which have a semi-cylindrical form.
At the extremities of the triangles,
the ring is perforated and a grove on the inside of the band links both holes.
Other precisions are: The center semi-cylindrical rectangle is slightly higher than the other two; the line forming
the right hand side of each triangle extends beyond the triangle.
The original ring was made of clay.
