This is National Trust undated handout photo made available on Tuesday April 2, 2013, of a Roman gold ring that could have inspired J.R.R Tolkien to write "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings" is going on exhibition in England. Found in a field in southern England in 1785, the ring is linked to a Roman tablet inscribed with a curse on the thief who stole it. That tablet was found at the site of a Roman temple dedicated to the god Nodens in Gloucestershire, western England. Tolkien worked on the etymology of the name Nodens in 1929 and visited the temple several times. (AP Photo/ Helen Sanderson/National Trust/PA ) UNITED KINGDOM OUT NO SALES NO ARCHIVE less
