Summary/Abstract: This paper deals with graffito from the first half of the fifteenth century. The presence of such graffito in the building of mythic renown is important because it is a first-hand evidence of the pilgrimís visit to Hagia Sophia, where Fedor, Ivan and Kosmas were able to join the throng of worshipers in venerating the relics of the Lordís Passion. The inscriber was Kosmas, who would have had an opportunity to scratch his name and the names of his compatriots on a column in the north gallery of the church.
