The Apse Mosaic at Cefalù Cathedral: Detail, Eight Greek Saints
Cathedral of the Transfiguration, Cefalù, Sicily
The upper register presents the Military Saints Theodore, George, Demetrius, and a fourth whose label and face were left out of the photograph. Each is dressed in a slightly different military uniform, and the register as a whole lacks the compositional balance of the procession of deacons that it faces across the presbytery.
In the lower register are four bishop saints, corresponding to the four Latin bishops across the presbytery. They are labeled Nicholas, Basil, John Chrysostom, and Gregory the Theologian (i.e. Gregory Nazianzus).1 Each wears the pallium that signifies episcopal status, but otherwise they are distinguishable only by their labels.

1 All but the last four letters of Gregory's name are obscured by the angle of the present photograph. There is no other saint whose name ends in -rios and whose epithet is "the Theologian."
