Detail of nave mosaic at the west end of Sant'Apolllinare Nuovo, Ravenna, depicting Theodoric's Palace. The mosaic dates from c.500 AD under Theodoric, but in c.560, the Arian king and his court were excised from the palace and replaced with black backgrounds and curtains. A hand belonging to one of the original occupants can still be seen on some columns.
