The single-nave church of the Holy Apostles, 100 metres to the south of St. George, also has two layers of wall paintings of the 14th and 15th centuries respectively. From the first layer very few forms can be discerned, such as the full-length figure of the woman donor on the north wall who has the attributive “presvyterysa” [wife of a priest]. The second layer, which is dated to the beginning of the 15th century, and is partially preserved has scenes from the Gospel cycle and the exceptionally large representation of the Second Coming which ­covers the west, a large part of the south and a part of the north walls. From the remaining ­representations, the multi-person scene of the Birth, with the western-style All-Holy Virgin the ­Galaktotrofousa on the south wall of the main church, as well as the large and graphic depiction of the Three Holy Youths in the Fiery Furnace on the south wall of the sanctuary, are ­noteworthy.
