Byzantine (Byz)
AKA: Etruscan, Birdcage, Fool's Dilemma, Idiot's Trap, Idiot's Delight, Bird's Nest

Weave Description
The Byzantine weave is made up of single units of Box Chain separated by sets of connector rings. In the most common configuration (pictured), sets of two connectors are used between each Box segment.

The sample pictured is made from .063" (1.6mm / 16 SWG) stainless steel wire wrapped on a 1/4" mandrel. Post-springback, these rings yield an AR of 4.3, which is a little bit high for the two connector version.

Recommended AR's: 3.2, 3.5, 4.3, and 4.9 for 1, 2, 3, and 4 connectors, respectively.
