The frescoes of Aphentiko church

Brontochion Monastery (Greek: Βροντόχιον, Μονή Βροντοχίου) is a monastery in Mystras, Greece.[1]

The abbot Pachomius incorporated into it the small church of the Hodegetria, or "Aphentikon", as the monastery's catholicon.[2][3][4] The church was reconstructed and completed around 1310, with some scholars giving 1308-1312 as the construction dates and others 1310-1322.[2][5]
