This high-relief piece depicts the head (and low- relief body) of a bearded man of uncertain identity, although he may be either a religious figure such as John the Baptist, or perhaps one of the Late Byzantine emperors. The Greek inscription suggests that the piece played a protective role, perhaps in a high-status household: LIKINNIS NENEDOS BOTRANOS APEDOKA TO DIEITEN EUKHEN HUPER SOTERIAS TES OIKIAS Translation: Likinnis Nenedos Botranos: I have given prayer [offering] for safety of the house. - (X.0724)
