Abstract
This work presents an analysis of the fragmentarily preserved slab walled into the cloister of the Monastery of St. Euphemia in Kampor, on the island of Rab. It is believed to be a preserved fragment of a pluteus from an altar fence that can be dated to the end of the sixth century or somewhat later, prior to the appearance of pre-Romanesque art. Based on the observed similarities with the pluteus from the cathedral in Zadar, the pluteus from Kampor can be ascribed to the Zadar masonry workshop from the end of Late Antiquity and the beginning of the Early Middle Ages.
