Byzantine bronze cross with a representation of the Virgin from the 11th-12th century A.D. Complete and in very good condition, few chips.
This mold-blown Bottle with Spiral Decoration has a globular shape, with a flattened, slightly hollow shoulder. The cylindrical neck is provided with a thick mouth.
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.
