This ring features a Victoriatus, an authentic Roman coin from 200 BC, showcasing Jupiter, the Roman deity equivalent to the Greek Zeus. On the coin's reverse side, Victory (Nike) is depicted. Jupiter, revered as the god of the sky and thunder, held the esteemed position of the king of gods in Ancient Roman religion and mythology. Throughout the Republican and Imperial eras, Jupiter stood as the principal deity of Roman state religion until the ascendancy of Christianity within the Empire.

In Roman mythology, Jupiter played a pivotal role in negotiating religious principles, including offerings and sacrifices, with Numa Pompilius, Rome's second king. Initially conceived as an aerial deity, Jupiter's iconic symbol was the thunderbolt, and his revered animal was the eagle, surpassing all other birds in auspicious significance. This emblematic duo, the thunderbolt and the eagle, often represented Jupiter, appearing on numerous Greek and Roman coins. As the god of the sky, he bore witness to oaths, embodying the sacred trust upon which justice and effective governance relied.

The focal point of many of his divine responsibilities lay on the Capitoline Hill, the site of the citadel. Within the Capitoline Triad, alongside Juno and Minerva, Jupiter served as the central guardian of the state. The oak stood as his sacred tree, encapsulating the reverence attributed to him.
