Maybe he lost it when he washed his hands of the Jesus thing.

No, it reads “this investment may gain or lose in value”.

Nice ring, but I am skeptical. Why would a ruler, who needs to impress his conies and the Romans and the people he rules, wear a brass/bronze ring instead of gold?

Seems he’d be cheapening his only livelihood (his impression on other people who he rules by force by the permission of the Romans) by wearing anything but gold.

The article speculates it’s to stamp documents with and you would not make a gold ring for that purpose.
