Riassunto: In the wake of the havoc wreaked on the imperial Byzantine palace on Constantinople's Seraglio Hill during the Nika Revolt, Emperor Justinian I launched an ambitious program of renovation, which included fitting one of the palace wings with a sumptuous polychrome mosaic floor. Stretching over 1,872 square meters, the tessellated pavement is one of the most beautiful landscape mosaics of late antiquity. Its discovery, history, and imagery are described in detail in "Istanbul, The Great Palace Mosaic," a superbly illustrated volume published upon completion of a 15-year project by the Austrian Academy of Sciences and Turkish Ministry of Culture to excavate and restore this masterpiece of ancient art.
