The nave is exquisitely illustrated too. On the dome Jesus Christ Pantokrator the All-Mighty and All-Seeing dominates with its position and magnitude surrounded by angelic ghosts as a chorus of honor. In the tympanum of the dome between the windows are the full-bodied figures of the prophets holding rotuli containing predictions which announce the coming of the Savior. On the pententives there are the four Evangelists.
On the lower register of the west wall as well as the west part of the north and south wall there are full-bodied figures of great saints, ascetes-anchorites. On the south pilaster of the west wall is depicted full-bodied in his monastic frock, holding a cross in his right hand and a rotulus in the left, the founder of the monastery Saint Athanasios. On the north pilaster in an equivalent position Saint Ioasaph is depicted in the same way, holding in his right hand a model of the katholikon of the monastery he built.
On the lower register of the choirs there are full-bodied military saints. High up on the three walls (west, north, south) there are two narrow zones with busts of saints. Above the main entrance and the inscription of the west wall there is the “Anapeson”.
The rest of the upper faces of the walls, as well as the arches- the arms of the cross are covered by the large iconographic cycle of the Despotic feasts and the Feasts of Virgin Mary, the miracles of our Lord etc.
The excellent painter of this assemblage of wall-paintings preferred to retain his anonymity. Yet on the basis of some distinctive features in the manner of his work we may attribute the illustration to certain painters of ateliers. Thus, these wall-paintings are attributed to the great Cretan painter Theophanis or to his pupil’s atelier or finally to the painter of the Monastery of Dousikon (St. Vissarion) who is Giorgis.
