Dionisy's frescoes. “Defeated is every hymn...” (Akathist. Kontakion 11)

Christ is depicted against the towers of the city wall with Metropolitans Peter and Alexius praying to him; below is the well surrounded by the sick. The composition stems from traditional representations of healing by the miraculous source near the Constantinople Monastery of Christ the Philanthropist in Mangan.
