Which Byzantine emperor is represented on the mosaics of St. Vital Basilica in Ravenna?

Answer

Two large side wall panels, placed face to face, flank the apse mosaic; they bear the most famous mosaics, probably, of all Byzantine art. These are the processions presided over by the imperial couple, Emperor Justinian and his wife Theodora.
