A Roman collar. Could either have belonged to a dog, or a slave. Fastened to the ring of iron is a metal disc bearing a Latin inscription:
fugi tene me
v eris me dm. zonino accipis solidvm
Which translates to “I have escaped - my master, Zonius, will give you a gold coin on my return.”
We can’t be certain if it belonged to a slave or a dog, as I said, but that alone tells us a lot about Roman slavery.
