The Scallop – Jerash, Jordan


An architectural motif often seen at Jerash is a semicircular niche crowned with a seashell relief. During the Greco-Roman period, the scallop or sea shell was a common design element. It typically signified fertility and was associated with either Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty, or with Venus who was the equivalent Roman deity.
