A SILVER GILT ENGRAVED DISKOS, GREEK, 17TH/18TH CENTURY.  At center within a gilded circular reserve is engraved an image of the crucified Christ with corresponding Greek inscription, "He Apokathelosis" literally "The Un-nailing" the term used for the "Removal from the Cross,”  referring to the removing of the nails when the body was taken down. Christ is depicted half-length upright in a sarcophagi, with the implements of the passion behind him (the cross) and flanking him, the spear (left) and the reed with sponge (right). The small devices equally spaced on the rim are likely designed to hold in place the asteriskos. The verso of diskos indistinguishably engraved in Greek, in one area, Georgiou Spatharikou, meaning perhaps “of Georgios Spatharikou." Diameter 7 inches (18 cm).
