- The sticharion  is a long, full sleeved tunic that reaches
the ankles. Since no other vestment is worn over the deacon's
sticharion, it is usually made of the same vestment material as the
priest's phelonion. The garment is symbolic of a pure and tranquil
conscience, a spotless life, and the spiritual joy in the Lord in him
who wears it.
- The epimanika  are cuffs worn by the deacon and higher
ranks of clergy. The deacon wears them under the sticharion. They
represent strength, patience and good will and are symbolic of the of
bonds where the hands of our Lord were bound.
- The orarion  is a long brochaded stole. It usually has the
words "Holy, Holy, Holy" embroided upon it. The orarion is usually worn
under the right arm, and after crossing the top of the left shoulder
passes in front and in back in equal lengths. The orarion is worn
differerntly before the Holy Gifts are consecrated. It is bound in the
form of a cross under both arms typifying the wings of angels.
