Summary "This publication introduces two so far unpublished friezes (A1 and A2) from the excavations in the Basilica on the so called Staatsmarkt in Ephesos in the sixties and seventies of the 20th century. These two friezes are made up of terracotta plaques which belong to second half of the 1st BC. On top of both friezes are ionic Kymatia. A1 shows alternating palmettes with Gorgoneia and busts, while frieze A2 shows only Shield Gorgoneia and palmettes. From A1 the red colour of the background is still preserved as well as two busts in archaistic style. The fragments of A1 offer many possible arrangements how the frieze may have originally looked. The most plausible variants have been shown by computer aid. The two friezes differ very much in their production levels. A2 is very careless manufactured in contrast to the carefully A1 manufactured. The Gorgoneia from A1 are in dependence on those of A2. With the evidence available, we may imagine how and where the friezes were fixed."--Publisher's website
