Plate with Monogram


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 301

Plates like this were made in sets for use in wealthy homes. The Greek letters at the ends of the cross-shaped monogram may refer to the owner, Theodore A(?). The control stamps on the back of the plate date it early in the reign of the emperor Heraclius (610–41).
