Long Description:
Agios Georgios (Lycabettus)

St. George in Lycabettus
Agios Georgios is a medieval church in Attica. It belongs to the Metropolitan area of ??Athens - Piraeus and is at the top of Lycabettus. In the illustrations of the tourists (eg, the Laborde of 1672) it seems that there was a temple in the area. Also, thanks to two inscriptions found, we know that at first there was the "Cemetery of Anastasius Charkeos and Ef. Oranda "as well as" Cemetery Diversity ". When the first temple was demolished, a new temple, one-aisled, royal temple, was built on the same foundation, for St. George. On the floor there is an inscription indicating that the chapel of St. George was established by the metropolitan of Athens Benedictto (1782-1785).
Later the temple was extended with the addition of two chapels, Prophet Elias and St. Constantine.
