Chrysotriklinos

   Literally, the "Golden Hall," a circular audience hall in the Great Palace at Constantinople (qq.v.). Below its dome of 16 windows were eight vaulted niches opening to other rooms. Because important ceremonial receptions took place there, in the apse was a throne for the emperor, along with beautiful tables and chairs. A famous cabinet called the pentapyrgion displayed imperial treasures to further impress the guests.
