Abstract:
In the course of consolidation works carried out by the 1st E.B.A. on St. Nicholas Rangavas, a cross-in-square church at the foot of the north slope of the Acropolis of Athens, there was discovered an incised invocatory inscriptions mentioning a member of the Rangavas family on one of the octagonal colonettes of the dome. The mid-11th c. inscription confirms the building of the church in the 11th c., and the old Athenian tradition linking the monument with the Rangavas family. The Leo Rangavas mentioned in the inscription must have lived in Athens at the time and may have been the founder of the church.
