699 – The tomb of Athanasius

The tomb (or grave) of saint Athanasios, founder of Lavra is in the Katholikon of this monastery. Never saw a picture of it because the monks are probably against it to let it be photographed. This image is from the book Monchland Athos by the German explorers of Dr. F. Dolger in 1941!
