Completing the set of 'spina' at the Hippodrome in Istanbul is the Walled Column. These days it stands as a very large and partially damaged stone column, however when originally erected it would have been covered head-to-toe in bronze plating showing various acts of Byzantine triumph. Like much in Constantinople however, this plating was looted by the Fourth Crusade in 1204. #istanbul #turkey #hippodrome #history #historyblog #travelpics #travelblogger #travelblog #travelphotography #byzantine #byzantium

The Serpent Column at the Hippodrome, Istanbul. Whilst it looks quite unassuming these days between the much larger Obelisk of Theodosius and the Walled Column, this would've also been a prized piece of the Hippodrome's 'spina'. Taken from the Temple of Apollo at Delphi, where it was created to honour the Ancient Greek victory over the Persians, the column originally had three twisting serpent heads at the top. Sadly these have been largely destroyed, fragments exist but not enough to display upon the column these days. #istanbul #turkey #hippodrome #byzantine #byzantium #history #historyblog #travelblogger #travelpics #travel #ancientgreece

The Obelisk of Theodosius (or Thutmose III), one of the prized monuments in the Hippodrome's 'spina'. Already almost 2000 years old when Emperor Theodosius ordered that it be shipped over to Constantinople from Egypt, at the height of the Hippodrome's days it is thought to have stood perhaps three times as tall as it does now. For an obelisk that is well over 3000 years old, which has been placed in the middle of a bustling city for almost 2000 years, it is in incredible condition and shows almost no signs of damage. The marble plinth it stands on was commissioned by Theodosius for the Obelisk to sit on, and shows the Emperor and his subjects at the races. #istanbul #turkey #history #byzantium #byzantine #historyblog #travelblogger #travelphotography #travelblog #travelpics #hippodrome

The Hippodrome of Constantinople. Or what's left of it in the modern day. Built in the 3rd century, the original Hippodrome of Byzantium was greatly expanded by Emperor Constantine I, adjoining his Palace near the Hagia Sophia. Supposedly the stadia was so large that it could fit the majority of the city in to watch the chariots racing around ancient monuments that made up the spine of the oval course, as well as entertain large scale political discourse and social meetings between the Emperor and his subjects. A few of these monuments still stand where the Hippodrome was today, although the use of the Hippodrome within Byzantium dwindled towards into the 2nd millenia - before it was damaged beyond feasible repair by the Fourth Crusade and the Ottomans' conquering of the city. #istanbul #turkey #hippodrome #travel #history #historyblog #travelblogger #travelphotography #travelpics #byzantine #byzantium

[English Text In The Comments]
''Българите правят засада на император Никифор'' - 811г. Художник - Дж. Х. Валда. ''....Никифор, след като ограбил и разрушил столицата Плиска , потеглил обратно за Константинопол като победител. Докато византийският император бил зает с разорението и опустошението на града, Крум мобилизирал всички налични сили и се подготвил за справедливо възмездие. Българите заградили входовете и изходите на планинските проходи с дървени укрепления и направили засеки в тесните места. Когато Никифор научил, че пътят за отстъпление е отрязан и, виждайки блокадата на Върбишкия проход, започнал да се отчайва. Обърнал се към войниците си и рекъл: „Дори да бяхме крилати, не бихме могли да избегнем гибелта.“ В теснините на Върбишкия проход станало страшно клане. През нощта българите се нахвърлили върху палатката на Никифор, където той бил убит. В нощния бой освен императорът загинали много видни велможи и военачалници, a именно патриций Теодосий Саливара, стратегът на източните войски патриций Роман и стратегът на Тракия. Ставракий, синът на Никифор, тежко ранен в гърба, едвам сполучил да избяга жив, след няколко седмици умира в Константинопол.

Българският владетел се прославил като победител над ромейския император. Битката била грандиозна военна и политическа победа, тъй като това е вторият византийски император, след Валент 400 год. по-рано, в цялата 1000-летна история на Византия, който пада в битка. Последният император Константин XI също загива от вражеско оръжие, но това става при падането на столицата Константинопол през 1453 г., когато съдбата на някогашната империя е вече решена.

Гордостта на Крум от великата победа най-ясно изпъква в разказа за Никифоровата глава. „Като отрязал главата на Никифора, пише летописецът, Крум очистил черепа и го обковал отвън със сребро, и с гордост карал славянските князе да пият.“ Славната победа окуражава Крум, който започва да се приготвя за възвръщане предишното положение на България като първа сила в Европейския югоизток.

The beautiful Hagios Demetrios, Thessaloniki. Another church in the city that has needed to undergo extensive restorations, the original structure was built in the 7th century yet throughout the years had been damaged, least not within a huge fire in the early 1900s. It stands in an absolutely stunning state today. Within the church are the relics of St Demetrios - the patron Saint of Thessaloniki. Beneath the alter are the remains of the Roman bathhouse where Demetrios was martyred. There still stands the fountain for worship today. #thessaloniki #greece #church #history #historyblog #byzantine #byzantium #travel #travelphotography #travelblogger

Hagia Sophia, Thessaloniki. Designed similarly to its larger namesake in Constantinople, the current building takes its roots from the 8th century. Previously known as the Great Church of Thessaloniki, the church needed extensive restoration in the early 1900s due to its state. The current church is a stunning mix of restored Frescos and post-Byzantine idols. #thessaloniki #greece #byzantine #byzantium #church #fresco #history #travel #travelblogger #travelphotography

Buona serata a tutti con questo stupendo mosaico bizantino spiegato da @_medievalart ! ☺️
with @get_repost
・・・
A mosaic portrait of the Emperor Justinian (or perhaps Theoderic) in the church of Sant'Apollinare Nuovo, Ravenna, executed sometime in the early 500s. The church of Sant'Apollinare was first built by the Ostrogothic King Theoderic 'the Great' in the late fifth/early sixth century as part of his palace complex in Ravenna. Soon after, the Byzantine Emperor Justinian (also 'the Great') conquered Ravenna and converted Theoreric's Aryan church to Orthodox Christianity. It was presumably around that time that this mosaic was re-laid, modified, or simply re-interpreted as a portrait not of Theoderic but of Justinian. It bears little resemblance to a contemporary depiction of Justinian in the nearby church of San Vitale (also in Ravenna), but an inscription above identifies the figure as 'IUSTINIAN.'⠀

The Walls of Thessaloniki - Northern and Eastern. Dating back in part to the Romans, the walls have consistently been expanded, repaired and strengthened by each ruler of Thessaloniki since - be them Byzantine or Ottoman. The current remnants of the Walls largely date back to Early Byzantine origin, 3rd-4th century. #thessaloniki #greece #byzantine #byzantium #walls #history #travelphotography #travelblogger

On the right side of the apse the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary is shown after the Annunciation, when she visited her cousin Elizabeth, who was also pregnant. It is an encounter of two mothers who have accepted the call of God and motherhood.

Thessaloniki's Byzantine baths - one of the best preserved Byzantine bathhouses in Greece. A lot of fantastic work has gone into restoring the building, which was falling apart at the turn of the 20th century. #thessaloniki #byzantium #byzantine #bathhouse #greece #history #travelphotography #travelblogger #travel

The Rotunda of Galerius, Thessaloniki. Built by Emperor Galerius in the 4th century to worship a Roman god, it was converted into a Christian church in the same century by Emperor Constantine I after Galerius had died. An enormous building, frescoes from its early use as a Christian church still exist today in quite good condition. When Thessaloniki was occupied by the Ottomans, it was also used as an mosque , hence the mineret located next to it which still stands today. #thessaloniki #roman #romanhistory #byzantine #byzantium #history #greece #travelphotography #travelblogger #travel

At the far edge of the #ancientworld militant #Christian warlords from #Ethiopia battled a #Jewish #Arab Kingdom in #Yemen for control of Southern #Arabia. Though little known today, this was an international #war that involved both the #ByzantineEmpire which had established Christian churches in Ethiopia and by the #SasanianEmpire in #Persia which supported the Jews in what became a #proxywar against its longtime foe #Byzantium.

In search of an ancient olive grove in the wild interior of the island. These trees would have been here when there was still an Emperor in Byzantium. Or maybe even when the Olympian gods were still worshipped side by side with the new Deity.... little white churches scattered over the land incorporate features from the temples that were there before.

Based this off an old idea for a print that I never bothered to vectorize. Dunno if my idea was grounded on historical accuracy but it just looked cool lol.
