RHYTON WITH A CARACAL CAT AND A FOWL Iran or Central Asia, late 1st century B.C. Silver with gilding Height: 27 cm, (vertical rim: 0.9 cm); length: 32.7 cm, (from rim of beaker to fowl's beak: 41.4 cm); diameter (beaker: 15.2-15.4 cm, cat's body: 5.1 cm); weight: 877.8 g.


RHYTON WITH A CARACAL CAT A FOWL     This stunning rhyton or drinking horn depicts the protome (forepart) of a desert lynx (caracal cat, Felis caracal), clutching a desperate cockerel in his paws. This object was made in two major parts - the horn and separately manufactured protome of the lynx and bird. According to Pieter Meyers, The beaker section is hammered from one piece of silver, with some period additions of silver alloy. The protome or section with the animals, is also hammered from one piece of silver, with the right wing and head of the fowl soldered on as cast elements. Gilding is used to highlight the trapped bird, but also appears on the eyes, inner ears and collar of the cat. As M. Pfrommer pointed out, the collar on the lynx suggests that a tamed animal, possibly used for hunting, is depicted here. Pfrommer further indicated that, although the theme is based on an Achaemenid concept, the style follows Greek standards, without the slightest reference to Achaemenid style, making it a telling example of the craftsmanship from the Hellenized Near East.

Floor mosaic depicting Dionysos's discovery of Ariadne on Naxos
Roman, probably from Syria, 3rd-4th century A.D. Stone tesserae in mortar Height, 352cm (138 5/8 in); width, 357cm(140 1/2 in)



The central panel of this extraordinary mosaic depicts a scene from Classical mythology, the moment when Dionysos, the Greek god of wine, first sees his future wife, the Cretan princess Ariadne. It seems to have been a popular subject for floor mosaics in Syria during the third and fourth centuries A.D. One of the most compelling aspects of this mosaic is its apparent transformation from a purely pagan image to one with Christian overtones. At some point in the mosaic's later history, a bloody wound that recalls the right ribcage injury sustained by Christ at the hands of the Roman soldiers who crucified him was added to Dionysos's left side. Apparently at the same time the red wound was added to Dionysos's side, a flat, vessel-like object was placed in his right hand. The identification of the object is uncertain, but it may represent either a shallow bowl for wine, previously the province of Dionysos but which in Christian iconography represented the blood of Christ, or a dish on which was served the bread that symbolized his body, both of which were consumed by Christ's followers in communion with their god.
