English The present paper deals with the mural decoration of the 14th century church of Agios Georgios Exorinos in Famagusta, Cyprus, traditionally considered to be a Nestorian- rite church. The remaining frescoes bear Syriac inscriptions and are characterized by a distinctive juxtaposition of Arab Christian, Byzantine Palaiologan, and Italianate Gothic features. They can be considered to be the work of different artists working between ca. 1300 and the last decades of the century for a community of either Maronite or Melkite Syrians connected with the Frankish family of the Gibelet, ancient lords of Jbail (Lebanon).
