Файл:ANFOH SEION, 1470 .jpg
Drawn by Martin Schongauer 1470.D Inscribed by the artist on the plate on the hat in brown ink, “ANFOH SEION”, a pseudo-Greek inscription written in Gothic script instead of the customary holy name of the Lord. The second word is doubtless intended to stand for Zion, but the first word does not correspond with any Greek word. The adornments of the head-dress are freely based on William Durandus's description in ‘Rationale Divinorum Officiorum’, book iii, itself an elaboration of Exodus xxviii, 39. The two small half moons however, appear to be Schongauer's own invention. According to Dur-andus, the plate was half-moon shaped. In the upper right-hand corner is the artist's monogram with the date “1470” executed in grey-brown ink in a different hand. The verso is inscribed in the lower left-hand corner, in pencil, by a later hand, “Maarten van Cleef”.
Additional information: K. Andrews queries the identification of a high priest. The inscription may read, 'AGNOE SEION' (with second and third letters reversed) in Greek, with reference to a passage in Exodus. He suggests that the head may be of some mysterious order, like the Freemasons, who derived their rites from medieval masons' workshops (lodges) and who claimed that their descendants were the builders of Solomon's temple (see K. Andrewes, Burlington Magazine, 1988, p.787.).
