Title: Justinian and Theadora
Post by: Vecchiolarry on September 03, 2007, 09:46:35 PM
Hello,

Can we discuss The Emperor Justinian and The Empress Theadora.

There are some wonderful mosaics of them in Ravenna, Italy.  Maybe we can start by posting those and talking about their reign.
Can somebody find and post these mosaics??
Thank you.

Larry
