Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a catalogue of ivory, bone, and wood architectural elements recovered from the apsidal room. The architectural elements include a curved sequence of finely worked ivory egg-and-dart ornament (Cat. nos. 351-378); fragments of a wood arcade covered with bone veneer decorated with erotes (Cat. nos. 479-505); ivory capitals (Cat. nos. 379-401), columns (Cat. nos. 426-430), and bases (Cat. nos. 402-425) that made up a Corinthian order; and ivory architectural moldings and bone blocks in various shapes and sizes that probably belonged with the above (Cat. nos. 506-518). All of the catalogued segments of egg-and-dart molding were cut back in an oblique angled curve at the top, and the reverse surface was scored as a key to hold the attachment adhesive: Cat. nos. 351-371 are scored with deep crisscross lines and Cat. nos. 372-378 with parallel lines. Catalogue numbers 372 through 378 preserve all or part of seven eggs.
