Large Byzantine Bronze Cross with Stippled Design

Near East/Holy Land, Byzantine Empire, ca. 8th to 12th century CE. A beautiful bronze cross with flaring arms. The surface of the cross is decorated with a stippled motif of Christ at the center and the Four Apostles, each shown in a bust inside a circular border, on each arm. A bronze chain link attached to a suspension loop at the top of the cross allows us to envision how it was used in life. Size of cross: 5.9" W x 7.55" H (15 cm x 19.2 cm); length of chain at top: 3.2" L (8.1 cm)

Condition: Intact, with a nicely preserved chain. Stippled motifs are worn but still visible.
