Mausoleum of Galla Placidia, Ravenna: detail of a moasic panel

RIBA27740
NOTES: This small cruciform brick chapel was reputedly commissioned to house the tomb of Galla Placidia, daughter of Emperor Theodosius I (379-395), and half-sister of Honorius (393-423), the last Emperor of Rome. She died in Rome in 450 and it is unlikely that she was ever buried here. Modern scholars suggest that she commissioned it as an oratory.
