Late Roman and Early Byzantine Treasures from the British Museum

November 11, 2012–August 25, 2013

Over 50 luxurious treasury objects from the British Museum showcase the splendor of wealthy households and important ecclesiastical sites between A.D. 300 and 650.

Comprised of luxurious yet portable items such as silver vessels, carved ivories, and gem-encrusted jewelry, these artworks reflect the splendor of wealthy households and important ecclesiastical sites.

The exhibition includes works such as the sixth-century Reliquary of St Menas. Many of the other pieces have never been shown in the US before.
