Emperor Justinian and His Attendants

One of the most studied mosaics of the Byzantine church of San Vitale in Ravenna, Italy is Emperor Justinian and His Attendants, sometimes called Justinian and His Courtiers, a companion piece to Empress Theodora and Her Attendants. The mosaics were completed in 547 AD, shortly before the consecration of the church.
