4th-7th c. AD

Cast from an Early Christian stone mould with a quotation from Psalm 91: Ο ΚΑΤΥΚΩΝ EN ΒΟΗΘΙΑ TOY (Υ)ΨΙΣΤΟΥ+ (“He that dwells in the secret place of the most high...”). This type of pendant often carries inscribed supplications, entreating Christ or the Virgin to protect and grant the owners good health. Psalm 91 appears on quite a few amulets from Syria, dated from the 4th-7th centuries A.D.
