Description

Gold ring made of Ottoman agate stone. Dated 1067 Hijri (1656/1657 Gregorian). “My trust rests in the almighty Creator and his servant Ali 1067” is written on the agate stone.
From the time of Sultan IV Mehmed. It is carved into the stone in a mirrored way, so that it can be used as a seal.
IV Mehmed (Ottoman: محمد رابع, romanized: Mehmed-i Râbi') or Mehmed the Hunter (January 2, 1642, Istanbul – January 6, 1693, Edirne) was the 19th Ottoman Sultan and the 98th Islamic Caliph. He is the son of Sultan İbrahim from Hatice Turhan Sultan. After his father's dethronement, he ascended the throne in 1648 at the age of six as the youngest sultan. Because of his love of hunting, he was nicknamed “Mehmed the Hunter”. With his reign of 39-year, he is the longest-reigning Ottoman sultan after Süleyman the Magnificent. During his reign the greatest frontiers in the West were reached.
Weight: 9.81 g.
