These pictures were taken in a corridor or series of adjacent rooms, number 11 on the ground plan, where there were several graves on either side with extensive frescoes.

I have been informed this may well be St. Nicholas raising a paralytic or someone from the dead

On the website of ‘’ this picture is identified as to be probably: ‘St. Nicholas appears in dream to Ablavius to save the innocent generals’.

The frescos depicting the life of St. Nicolas (and the legends about him), in the northeast aisle arcade of the church, date from the 12th century. They are the only surviving ‘St. Nicolas cycle’ in Turkey.
