A sweet looking short string of bumpy-eye type beads showing an iridescent patina and three matching pairs of beads. They are about 9 x 9 mm up to 14 x 14 mm in size. From the Anatolian or southern side of the Black Sea, these are thought to date from about 400 to 600 AD (Roman-Ostrogothic), but the date could easily go earlier or even later. Similar type beads have been seen from the Phoenician trade era up to the late first millennium AD.
