A marble chancel screen found at Ashod is decorated with a three-footed menorah enclosed in a Hellenistic-style wreath. The screen separated the apse from the rest of the synagogue. To the left of the menorah is a shofar or ram’s horn; to the right is a lulav or cluster of branches—both traditional Jewish symbols. This is an example of the widespread use of the menorah in synagogues in Roman-Byzantine Palestine.
