Many Roman dignitaries did not want to move to the new capital of the Roman Empire, Constantinople. Then Constantine sent them on a campaign against the Persians, taking away from them all the rings with personalized seals. Soon, their families who remained in Rome received letters with orders to move. While they were gathering things in Constantinople, replicas of their Roman houses were rebuilt. What role did the selected rings play in this story?
It was thanks to the selected rings that it became possible for the dignitaries to move to the new capital of Constantinople. The ring played an important role. The ring was engraved, which was used as a seal. In the modern world, we sign documents, and in those days we put a stamp. Also, when sending a letter, it was closed, wax was dripped and a seal was put on top of the hot wax – this method helped to make sure the recipient that the letter was written by the addressee.
The families who received the letters with the seal believed that they were written by their relatives (husbands, fathers).
