The paper presents a primary report of the Byzantine sculpture from St. Philip church, mainly dating to the 6th-century phase with a little part of later dating (not after the late 10th or early 11th century). After a brief review on the typologies of pieces found during the excavation, the contribution focuses on two specific aspects concerning: (1) how the sculpture was intended and organized within the space of the St. Philip church, with particular reference to the ambo in the central nave and to the ciborium in the bema (with an analysis of the ornamental patterns there used and propose comparisons); (2) how the artisans have shaped these sculptures, highlighting particularly on traces of the working process that few pieces still preserve as well as particular aspects of the sculpture such as color, here considered as painted layer or used in champlevé technique.

Abstract

The paper presents a primary report of the Byzantine sculpture from St. Philip church, mainly dating to the 6th-century phase with a little part of later dating (not after the late 10th or early 11th century). After a brief review on the typologies of pieces found during the excavation, the contribution focuses on two specific aspects concerning: (1) how the sculpture was intended and organized within the space of the St. Philip church, with particular reference to the ambo in the central nave and to the ciborium in the bema (with an analysis of the ornamental patterns there used and propose comparisons); (2) how the artisans have shaped these sculptures, highlighting particularly on traces of the working process that few pieces still preserve as well as particular aspects of the sculpture such as color, here considered as painted layer or used in champlevé technique.
