Meander Frieze of St. Paul

Meander frieze of St. Paul, from the Church of Seleucia Pieria, c.525-50 AD. A computer reconstruction shows the original multicolor decoration. "The bas-relief and the champlevé carvings [of the Seleucia Pieria church] are of great interest because they form the only extant program of Christian figural sculptures found at Antioch and because such a variety of themes from the Old and the New Testaments are represented." (Susan Boyd in Antioch: The Lost Ancient City). Princeton Art Museum, inv. c543-S650.
