59 Andriake (2)

Menorah panel discovered in the synagogue of Andriake. The iconography of the menorah—spirals beneath each branch, palm frond and citron to its left, and a shofar to its right—is clearly Jewish and fits with the other menorahs with curls from Nicaea, Sardis, and now Andriake in Lycia. Stephan Westphalen, writes, “[t]he menorah plaque was reused as a spolia in the floor of the Byzantine basilica.”
