Medieval Crimean mural showing St. George

Mural from Eski Kermen showing St. George (13th-14th centuries). This piece might be one of the very few wall paintings preserved which date to the time of the principality of Theodoro / Gothia, a Greco-Gothic petty state in southwestern Crimea. It lasted from approximately the early 14th century to 1475, when its fortress-capital, Theodoro aka Mangup, was stormed by the Ottomans, resulting in the termination of the last independent Byzantinoid state.
