Those winged horses is a silk serge fabric and was used as a cushion for the enamel cross of the Pope Paschal (817 – 824) and is said to be Byzantine (8th cent). Museo Sacro Vatican. The author notes that this “pegasus” was exactly the same type of animal as the sassanian original which may be seen on silk fabrics from Antinoe wich are now in Lyon and Berlin. The high degree of stylisation proves that it was made in Byzantium.
