Sant'Apollinare Nuovo: Nave Mosaics

Nave Mosaics

Mosaics on the south wall of the nave in Sant'Apollinare Nuovo, Ravenna. The basilica was built under the Arian Goth Theodoric around 500 AD. The procession of saints on the lower row and the prophets between the windows are Byzantine, dating from c.560. The palace on the far right and the narrative panels along the very top date from c.500 under Theodoric.
