Alexander Panel in Hagia Sophia

Here's a page I wrote that is dedicated to the very hard to find mosaic in the upper gallery of Hagia Sophia of the Byzantine Emperor Alexander - Alexandros

Mosaic of Leo VI from the Narthex of Hagia Sophia

This mosaic stands above the main Imperial door from the inner narthex into the sanctuary of Hagia Sophia.  Leo was married too many times and this mosaic was a result of his problems with the Church.
