That might be true, but it still represents the shape of a real throne!!

Hi Carme,

That figures, as the Norman-Sicilan kingdom was heavily influenced by Byzantium.

By the way, here's a side picture of the "Throne of Maximian":

[Image: ivory15.jpg]

I also found this picture in one of my books, of the Roman magistrate Rufius Probianus on his throne.

[Image: Throne2.jpg]

The picture lacks a bit of depth, but it is clear he sits on a chair of the same design as the throne of Maximian.
It's a diptych of around 400 AD, so I think Galla Placidia definitely has her throne.
Now just the minor details of having it made and decorated Smile
I do think it does not have to be as opulent as the Throne of Maximian, being over a century younger, but some decoration might be in place.

Well, I’ve been busy looking through my books and the Internet on chairs and thrones (hey, Vorty and me undoubtedly want to have *our* turn too sitting on a throne, sooner or later J)

When you look at this 3rd century relief from Trier, you have a sideview of a chair that is pretty much like a classical high-backed Roman chair, which apparently could be made of wood or of wicker.

[Image: Chair1.jpg]

Here’s a picture of a chair on a 4th century sarcophagus from the Vatican:

[Image: Chair2.jpg]

Looks like a classical type high-backed chair made of wicker, no? Notice the footstool, by the way.

I am going out on a limb here, but I bet the classical high-backed chair was still pretty common in late Roman times.

Now take another look at the throne of Maximian, front and side views

[Image: Throne3.jpg]

It seems the throne is derived, in shape, from the classical chair, and it may have been, even at this time, nothing more and nothing less than a fancy version of a chair type still in common use at the time (or at least until fairly recently). However, its seating area looks a bit “highâ€

Compare also with this:

Virgin Mary on throne, catacomb of Domitilla circa 530 AD, Rome:

It is again a rather “flatâ€

Herod on his throne, again S.M.M.:

And the apocryphal throne of Christ, once again S.M.M.:

and the same in San Vitale, Ravenna:

And always...the footstools :wink:

Yes!!!

In Tarragona I have one friend, he is the best cabinet-maker in the city, he works in the cathedral, museums, etc. He is an eminence in the city, and he wants to make me a imperial Throne.
I have very good luck!!!!!! Big Grin D D
