Latin for "arrival," referring to the ceremony required when an emperor, bishop (qq.v.), high officials, relics (q.v.) of a saint, or an imperial fiancée, was welcomed into a city. For example, in the case of an emperor returning to Constantinople (q.v.), a delegation that included city officials and the bishop met the emperor outside the city at a prescribed distance with acclamations (q.v.), incense, and golden crowns or wreaths. Then they accompanied the emperor along the Mese (q.v.), the great processional boulevard, into Constantinople. In 508 this ritual resonated in the barbarian West when Clovis (q.v.) created an imperial adventus into Tours to celebrate the status of honorary consul that emperor Anastasios I (qq.v.) had conferred upon him.
