Lot 383
Uncertain ruler, 10th - 11th century. One-sided roundel (Bronze, 52 mm, 5.42 g, 12 h), a one-sided, possibly once gilt, bracteate-like roundel, almost certainly meant to serve as an ornament at one of the eight ends of a two-sided processional cross. OA / ΘE/O-ΔO/PO/C Half length figure of St. Theodore of Amasea facing, armor covered by a cloak, holding spear in his right hand and a sword within its scabbard with his left. Rev. Incuse version of the obverse design. For typical examples of Byzantine processional crosses see M. Martiniani-Reber, Byzance en Suisse, Geneva, 2015, pp. 325 ff., and Wikipedia. For a contemporary, or slightly earlier, full figure representation of St. Theodore of Amasea, see the figure on the Harbaville Triptych in Louvre (OA 3247). A lovely piece, with a fine green patina and an excellent portrait of St. Theodore, done in a simple but very elegant style. Extremely fine.
