#Icon of Saint John, the Prophet, Forerunner, and Baptizer of the Lord.
#Icon of the patron of the temple, or of its patronal feast.
#The [[Royal Doors|Holy Doors ]] (or the Royal Doors). These usually are a [[diptych]] of the [[Annunciation]]. Sometimes they may also have the icons of the four [[evangelist]]s.
#North door (the north and south doors are often called "deacon's doors"). This will usually depict a deacon, usually St. Stephen the Protomartyr, or an archangel, usually St. Michael.
#South door. The same as above, though if a [[deacon]] is depicted, it is usually St. Philip or St. Lawrence, and if an [[archangel]], usually St. Gabriel.
