EDITORS COMMENTS
The Ivory Diptych of Stilicho: A Glimpse into the Ancient World of Power and Devotion The Ivory Diptych of Stilicho, a stunning work of art from the late 5th century AD, offers a captivating glimpse into the world of power, faith, and family during the twilight years of the Western Roman Empire. This exquisite diptych, now housed in the Royal Palace of Monza, Italy, is a masterpiece of ivory carving that once belonged to the renowned military leader and statesman, Stilicho. On the left panel, Stilicho, dressed in military attire, stands with a stern expression, symbolizing his strength and authority as a powerful Roman general. His right hand rests on the hilt of his sword, while his left hand holds a model of a ship, signifying his control over the Roman navy. The intricate details of his armor and the folds of his cloak are meticulously carved, showcasing the exceptional craftsmanship of the artist. On the right panel, Stilicho is depicted in a more relaxed and intimate setting. He is shown with his wife, Serena, and their young son, Eucherius. Serena, dressed in elegant robes, holds a model of a church, representing her role as a devout Christian. Their son, Eucherius, stands between them, symbolizing the continuity of the Stilicho family lineage. The diptych's vibrant colors and intricate details bring the figures to life, transporting us back to a time when the Roman Empire was at the height of its power and influence. The use of ivory, a precious and valuable material, underscores the wealth and importance of Stilicho and his family. This ivory diptych is a treasure of paleo-Christian art, offering a unique insight into the lives of the powerful figures of the late Roman Empire. Its intricate carvings, vivid colors, and intimate portrayal of family and faith make it a must-see for anyone interested in ancient history and art.
