The ceramics from the Chapel of Faneromeni on Salamis

Attached to the southern side of the church, in the monastery of Faneromeni, is a chapel containing nine ceramics built into the wall. Three plates decorate the southern door and the window over the arch, while, on the eastern wall, the window of the pediment is crowned by three bowls. On the southern side, one of the plates, made in Corinth during the second half of the 13th century or the early 14th century, is a wonderful example of the drawn incised type (painted sgraffito). One of the bowls belongs to the same period and is of a similar technique. Two of the plates of the central arch, decorated with stylized plant motifs, are Italian ceramics from Pisa belonging to the 15th or early 16th century.
