Hagia Sophia Istanbul
North Tympanum
Hagia Sophia North Tympanum

These mosaics are located on the left balustrade above the upper gallery, below the two rows of windows of the tympanum. They depict John Chrysostom and Ignatius the Younger. They both do blessing with their right hands while carrying the holy bible on their left hands. Nothing left from the mosaics at the opposite tympanum probably due to earthquakes.
