The dominating round platform at the center of the Great Curial Hall of the Senatorial Palace or the platform on which it stands, by association refers to the power of the Senate and is the basis of the Aurician expression, "to approach the Mensary." A gallery of nearly equal height circumambulates the Great Curial Hall. A lower hall, analogous to a moat, separates the gallery and the mensary, thus requiring a bridge to gain access to it. There are three such bridges, each corresponding to one of the three great apses. The gallery communicates with the airy openings to all three apses of the Great Curial Hall which are reserved for the peerages of the Aurician Noble Senate: Hierophants, Dukes, Counts, Barons, and Metropolitans.
