"cimaise": examples and translations in context
Sur les cimaises des chapiteaux, une inscription en caractères coufiques cite le nom de “Karim, son serf”, que l'on a interprété comme étant Abd al-Karim, maître d'œuvre d'Abd al-Rahman II. The top mouldings of the capitals bear an inscription in kufic characters that reads 'Karim your servant', which is understood to refer to ‘Abd al-Karim, a well-known foreman of ‘Abd al-Rahman II.
Sur la façade ouest, aux volumes dysharmonieux, on trouve une fenêtre à alfiz, des cheminés, des traces de sgrafitte floral qui auraient décoré les cimaises des quatre façades ainsi que la tour, première structure de l'ensemble, qui devait dater du début du XVe siècle. On the west façade, whose proportions are not harmonious, there is a window with a rectangular decorative surround (alfiz), chimneys, vestiges of floral sgraffito work, which perhaps decorated the cymas (cornices) of the four façades, and a tower, which was the first structure of the complex and probably dates back to the early 15th century.
