Byzantine ivory pyx

A rare Byzantine pyxis in ivory, resting on three stylized lion's feet. The cylindrical body of the pyxis is decorated with four oval medallions carved in relief with the images of two male saints wearing a nimbus, one of which holds a sword (prob. Saint Paul) and the other is blessing a chalice (prob. Saint John) . The other medallions are carved with a "cross pattée" decorated with annulets, while the other contains a laurel wreath.

Byzantine Empire. Circa 900-1100 A.D.

Dimensions: height 8,2cm ; diameter 5,6cm

Provenance: ex Swedish private collection.
