The distinction between “embroidered poterokalymmata” and “antique poterokalymmata” in the Patmos inventory could mean only that there were two embroidered poterokalymmata and five older poterokalymmata, and that the five older poterokalymmata were different from the other two primarily because of their relative age, not necessarily because of the technique of decoration.

Since many of the publications that deal with the subject at all are catalogues, an essay on any one of the textiles listed in a catalogue is usually a simple description of that textile’s function and iconography.
