A Special Note on Knobbed Celtic Rings:
Anthropologists theorize that reverence for nature may be at the heart of the rare, unusually-shaped examples of Celtic Ring Money Like this knobbed ring. Three-pronged propellers, three fused rings, and knobbed circles with three for four knobs or pairs of raised bumps have all been found, and may have been used for ceremonial purposes or as talismans with spiritual significance.
