Unsigned works of art, especially those which are hundreds of years old, are difficult to assign to a particular artist. Works attributed to “Byzantine 13th Century” are characterized by Byzantine stylistic elements, such as an emphasis on mysticism and decoration rather than on naturalistic representation. The Byzantine Empire dates from the founding of Constantinople in AD 330 to its conquest by the Turks in AD 1453.
