Great episode like always, personally I can’t wait for the rise of Basil I.

Absolutely wonderful episode, great coverage on Iconoclasm! I do admit, I will miss Iconoclasm though… I never got the Sack of Damietta though, and while I’m sure we’re getting there, could you also note the sources of the event? I’ve not found a source that mentions it more than it does a footnote in the wider book!
