        Message 3 of 4 , Mar 11, 2008
          Sorry, I neglected the facing page:



          Fig. 3. The family of the prince (“ knyaz’ “) Sviatoslav
          Iaroslavich (1027-1076). Watercolor from the manuscript of “Izbornik
          Sviatoslava” (“Sviatoslav’s Compilation”) of 1073. Prince, his wife, and sons
          in clothing of Byzantine style.



          On the prince there is a hat with fur brim and flaps, with
          wide rounded top. Blue cape with gold trim and red lining, fastened at the
          right shoulder, is covering his left arm and most of his front. Under the cape
          there is a sort of tunic (kaftan) of green with red border at the hem and gold
          cuffs. On his feet there are green boots of soft leather. On the princess there
          is a belted overdress of reddish yellow with border at the hem. Under the dress
          show a tunic and tips of red boots. Gold cuffs show from under the wide sleeves
          of the overdress. Prince’s sons wear variously colored belted kaftans (coats)
          with collars, wide borders at the hems, and cuffs. On there heads there are
          fabric rounded  hats shaped as cones with
          fur trim.



          Note 1. In later artifacts princes and boyars, from Oleg and
          Igor on, are portrayed in hats with fur brims and jewel-trimmed radiating
          strips.



          Note 2: Byzantine historian Leo Diacon, who saw the
          great-grandfather of Sviatoslav Iaroslavich, Sviatoslav Igorevich (942-972)
          gives this description, which is the earliest available to us description of
          the appearance of a Russian prince:



          “He looked like this: middle height, not too tall, not too
          small, with bushy eyebrows, blue eyes, flat nose, shaved beard and thick long
          mustache on the upper lip. His head was completely bold, but on one side there
          dangled a lock of hair showing his high birth; shoulders broad, neck thick, the
          figure rather trim.  He appeared gloomy
          and strict. In one ear he had a bold earring, decorated with two pearls and a
          ruby in between them. His clothing was white, not distinguished from others by
          anything other than cleanliness” (quoted from The History of the USSR, 1939, p. 94).
