Description: Epitaphios is the name of the icon depicting Christ after he has been removed from the Cross and is ready for burial. Today, the icon is most often a large, embroidered and richly adorned cloth. It does however, also exist in painted and mosaic form, and on walls and panels. It is used on the last two days of Holy Week in the Byzantine rite, as part of the ceremonies marking the death and resurrection of Christ. Then it is placed on the Holy Table, where it remains throughout the Paschal season.

This service is preceded by Vespers of the Descent from the Cross at 12 Noon.
