L4a1 is 4^2_1 in the Rolfsen table of links. It frequently occurs in late Roman mosaics and some medieval decorations. In this context, it is called the "Solomon's knot" (sigillum Salomonis) or "guilloche knot". It is also the "Kramo-bone" symbol (meaning "one being bad makes all appear to be bad") of the Adinkra symbol system. Link L10a101 contains multiple L4a1 configurations.
