The legend of the deer

According to the legend, Roman Diogen, while hunting in the surrounding forests, wounded a deer, which fled to the cave where it lived with the hermit and saint – Prohor Pcinjski. Prohor Pcinjski asked Diogen not to kill the deer, and when he obeyed, he prophesied that when he returned to Constantinople he would become a Byzantine king. After the prophecy became true, Roman Diogen, in appreciation, erected the church of St. George.
