Dionysiou: Clock with “Athos-time”, a bell and a large wooden semantron. Below is the portico.
Portico: a column with a capital. It is difficult to say if this capital is an original part of Christian building/architecture, or that it is an ancient Corinth capital from a nearby ancient city. In many monasteries you can find old greek columns and capitals (Lavra!). Dionysiou / Ag. Pavlou are situated near ancient Thyssus.
Dionysiou portico: a marble column with a Christian cross and inscription
A painting above the entrance of Dionysiou: Mary, Christ and Prodromos (St. John), with the two archangels left and right.
Dionysiou, just right from the entrance in the a courtyard: a well or fountain.
Dionysiou: self-serv breakfast in the guestroom (Winfried, Peter and Jitze): bread, marmelade, olives and tea.
In the guestroom: a special (and old?) drawing of Dionysiou behind glass (with reflection of the flash).
29 September 2009, time to leave Dionysiou and start our hike to Pantocratoros.
