Monk Theophilos is pictured on the lower part of the soffit of the eastern arch of the narthex. Reference to Theophilos is made in the dedicatory inscription as one of the main donor supported by the common people. His body is turned towards Virgin Phorviotisa but his eyes and glance turn to the side of the observer.
His tunic and undergarment are dark grey and brown, respectively. Both are fastened by a black belt with a metallic buckle while the folded triangles indicate that the tunic had a front opening. The length of his tunic is remarkably short with this resulting in a part of his legs being exposed along with his pointed, black and white boots. The monk Theophilos has his head covered with a kukulion. The inscription that accompanies his figure reads: 'The servant of God Theophilos the monk is dead, and those who look at this pray to the Lord, amen'.
