Gold Plated Lithography with Saint Fanourios

Saint Fanourios, this beloved saint, remained for many centuries unknown. He became known when his icon was accidentally found in the 14th century AD in Rhodes. 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.
