Today I will show you the remaining scenes from the lithi/exonarthex of Skiti Dimitriou. The images are rare and not shown before in any book I know or on the internet. Most of the pictures here concern the life of St. Antony and St. Paul (for part one look here). The frescoes date from 1806 (source).
“In the evening, the raven came bringing a whole loaf of bread. St. Paul said to St. Antony, “Now, I know that you are one of the children of God. For 70 years, the Lord has been sending to me everyday, half a loaf of bread, but today, the Lord is sending your food also. Now, go and bring me back in a hurry the tunic that Emperor Constantine had given to Pope Athanasius.”
This scene is from Saint Euphrosynos the Cook.
