"The extent to which Hagia Sophia itself may have suffered in the course of this conflict is uncertain; there was undoubtedly some destruction of its images, but others were saved. We know only that “the victory of the image-worshipers was celebrated by the installation of the long-banished pictures in Saint Sophia on the 19th February 842, just thirty days after the death of Theophilus.”"

Emperor Theophilos in the Chronicle of John Skylitzes.
