Burial recesses, saints and martyrs

In the Parakklesion there are four recesses - two on either side - where formerly there were sarcophagi, which have not remained in situ. Their technical name is arcosolium, plural -ia. I here group them, some elements in their decoration, and sometimes some of the elements nearby.

I used to have a sub-gallery about the (warrior) saints and martyrs that were represented around the recesses, but I've moved them here.
