Menorah Panel, Andriake Synagogue

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.”
