Was It a Synagogue? Preliminary Thoughts on the New Finds from Limyra
This article represents a response to the excavation report by Seyer and Lotz. Weiss discusses the location of the Limyra building within the city as well as its building constructions and itsraw materials. Weiss compares the Limyra building with diaspora synagogues with regard to its architectural layout and orientation as well as with regard to the functionality of its excavatedrooms and its water basin. Weiss discusses also the chancel screens with the menorah depictions and the date of structure in Limyra. As in other Diaspora synagogues, the location of thebuilding, its construction on an earlier structure, the use of spolia, a water installation, and an ornate bima with a decorated chancel screen are the major elements supporting an argument for an identification of the Limyra building as a synagogue but only further excavations could warrant a clear identification.
