There was an ancient temple with many damaged icons. Among them was the well-preserved icon of the Saint. In the icon, Saint Fanourios was portrayed as a young soldier, holding a cross on his right hand, on which there was a lit candle. Around the picture there was a representation of his twelve martyrs. In some of them, the Saint was shown standing among soldiers and being judged by a ruler, being stoned, his body wounded with iron nails, imprisoned and tortured.
