This is a detail from an ivory diptych in the Musée National du Moyen-Âge (Cluny). It shows the consul Areobindus presiding over the games in Constantinople. Like the inscriptions from the Colosseum that I discussed the other day, the diptych can be dated by consular date. Flavius Areobindus Dagalaiphus Areobindus was consul in AD 506.
