Archaeometry 52
University of Oxford, 2010, p. 796-815

[1001, 1100]
• 51 glass mosaic tesserae of Byzantine wall mosaics analysed by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES), electron microprobe analysis (EMPA) and X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD):
– analyses of chemical composition: Na, Mg, Al, Si, P, S, Cl, K, Ca, Ti, Cr, Mn, Fe, Co, Cu, Sn, Sb, Pb;
– discrimination between the tesserae of the original decorations from those of other periods;
– question with regard to the changes of the fluxing agent in opaque glass production and in the materials used as opacifiers or colouring agents.

• Daphni - medieval tesserae:
–predominant type: mixed natron-plant ash soda-lime glass (only a few samples are closer to the plant ash type).

• Hosios Loukas - medieval tesserae:
– mixed natron-plant ash soda-lime glass,
– plant ash type glass.
