Menorah Detail

A detailed view of one of the capitals used in the fifth/sixth century synagogue at Capernaum.  Note especially the three Jewish features: the seven branch menorah on a tripod, to its left an incense shovel, and to its right a ram’s horn (shophar).  Below it are typical Corinthian acanthus leaves.
