Murom’s wonderworkers are shown alongside the saints that are kindred to them in terms of veneration and iconography. The saints are depicted on either side of Murom’s Church of the Nativity of the Mother of God in a pose of prayerful intercession with the Savior Emmanuel. In the first and second tiers below are six saints, by three in each tier: princes Constantine, Michael and Feodor of Murom, princes Feodor, David and Constantine of Yaroslavl (left); prince Peter and princes Fevronia of Murom, the righteous Juliania Lazarevskaya, martyrs and confessors Sts. Gurias, Samon and Aviv (right). In the upper part of the left group are St. Basil of Ryazan, an unknown priest and a women martyr. Symmetrically to them, to the right, are two unknown men and a martyr (the inscriptions didn’t survive).
