dc.description Byzantine, c. 800 – 1100 C.E.
dc.description Fine bronze crucifix with relief of the risen Christ with Greek inscription above the head, the robe and other details are incised. One indentation and hole at each of the four ends of cross and one in the center. Each corner of plaque is decorated by a small knob. All survive except two on the right end of the horizontal bar. Both the top and bottom had two protrusions, one of which is missing from the top left of the vertical bar. The center and the ends of each leg go the cross are pierced by holes for the chains which would hold the item around the neck of the clergyman, hence an enkolpion. The surface suffers from mild to moderate “bronze disease.”
