What is certain is that in the seventeenth century the chapel was dedicated to the Theotokos.
The church became the shrine of the eikon of the Theotokos 227Hodegetria.
Nor can it be doubted that a church in the latter quarter was dedicated to the Theotokos Euergetes.
But that date is based on the mistaken view that the building is the church of the Theotokos erected by Constantine Lips.
But the plan of the building does not correspond to the description given of the Theotokos in the district of the Curator.
The eikon of the Theotokos Hodegetria was, therefore, taken to the Chora to guard the post of danger.
