The preserved part of the scene (right) presents the body of the saint lying on a simple straw mat, with an icon of Christ placed on his chest. Grouped in a semicircle around St. Euthymios, monks express their sorrow by gesturing or bowing their heads. One monk, standing at the saints head, raises his face and hands, probably pointing toward heaven.
