Abstract:

The archaeological research, discovered between 1920–1922 at the Princely Court of Argeş, led by Virgiliu Drăghiceanu, revealed, among other medieval artifacts, several ceramics fragments, used for stoves decoration of the Princely Palace. The study presents three fragments of plate tile, unglazed, on which is represented a pair of dancers, accompanied by a bagpiper. In the center of the composition there is a depiction of a cross, the Christian symbol, which suggests that the slow dance scene is taking place under the divine blessing, in connection with the wedding ceremony. The iconography of these tiles provides an important document on the Princely Court life and Christian rituals at the end of the fifteenth century.
