Hagia Sophia, Istanbul - Η Αγιά Σοφιά, Κωνσταντινούπουλη
Η Αγιά Σοφιά, Κωνσταντινούπουλη
This mosaic tops the imperial entrance to the Hagia Sophia's interior. It depicts Christ Pantocrator holding a book with the Greek inscription "Peace be with you. I am the Light of the World."
Christ is surrounded by roundels portraying the Virgin Mary and the angel Gabriel (who also feature in the apse mosaics). The mosaic dates to between 886 and 912 AD.http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/j.../greekflag.gif
