The epitrachelion of Saint Sava (ca. 1175-1236) is kept in the Treasury of the Monastery of Cetinje (Cetinjski manastir). It is of Greek provenance and dated to the 12th century. The gold embroidered epitrachelion shows on top the Annunciation and below ten Saints with Greek inscriptions (below the Annunciation on the right from top to bottom: Saint John Chrysostom, Saint Nicholas of Myra, Saint Hierotheos, Saint Cyril and Saint Gregory of Nyssa; below the Annunciation on the left from top to bottom: Saint Basil of Caesarea, Saint Gregory the Theologian/of Nazianzus, Saint Dionysios, Saint Athanasius of Alexandria and Saint Spyridon). The epitrachelion was either deposited in the monastery by the Serbian Archbishop Danilo II (ca. 1270/75-1337) or by the Serbian Patriarch Arsenije III Čarnojević (1633-1706) in 1688, before he led the Serbian people in the so-called "Great Serbian Migration" (Velika seoba Srba) from Kosovo to the Habsburg Empire.
