A Byzantine gentleman

By CORNUCOPIA BLOG | August 16, 2013


Thank you to one of our readers, Leyla Argun from Greece, who has sent in this colourful rendition of Thomas Whittemore, an American Byzantinist and Egyptologist who discovered important mosaics at Haghia Sophia and initiated a project to restore it in the early 1940s. 

Robert S Nelson's piece in Cornucopia 49 has more on the enigmatic Mr. Whittemore.
