Byzantine Terracotta Horse-Shaped Ryhton from the 5th-6th century B.C.
Carved from two fragments of dark green stone mottled with light patches (steatite probably), these two objects represent animals with highly stylized and abstract shapes.
A circular vessel with a rounded profile, an inwardly rolled edge and a small disk-shaped, low foot. The medallion, with its brown background, is decorated in the “champlevé” technique. The animal represented in the tondo is a hare.
This cross, which can still be opened and closed, is composed of two bronze boxes that were molded and held by hinges. A thick suspension ring enabled the encolpion to be worn as a pendant.
