In 879, following what was called a "victorious return from campaign", the Emperor Basil I staged a triumphal entry into the city of Constantinople. After spending the night at Hebdomon, he moved in solemn procession toward the city, stopping for a costume change at the monastery of the Avraamites before passing through the Golden Gate.
