Abstract

Among the many spectacular finds from the Iron Age site of Salamis on the eastern coast of Cyprus are two royal pieces of furniture covered in ivory and inlaid with blue decoration. We have determined that this decoration is made of cobalt-blue glass, probably of Egyptian origin, similar to the inlays in the contemporaneous Nimrud ivories. The data link the glass from Salamis to the growing corpus of Iron Age Egyptian cobalt-blue mineral natron glass, found from Nimrud in Mesopotamia to Bologna in northern Italy, several sites in southeastern France, and now Cyprus.
