The focus of this workshop is a hitherto misunderstood carved armorial panel from the 16th-c. principal doorway of the now ruinous former Greek cathedral of Nicosia, Cyprus (known as the Bedesten). Starting with an examination of the attribution of its five surviving heraldic shields, the worksop will assess prevalent views and will seek to offer alternative options on the premise that their identity is strictly local rather than Venetian.
