'''Dikirion''' and '''trikirionTrikirion''' are liturgical candlesticks, often quite ornate, used by a [[bishop]].
Both dikirion and trikirion have a flat base, so that they may be stood upright. Above this base is a vertical shaft terminating in candleholders. The dikirion holds two candles, representing the dual natures of [[Jesus Christ]] (i.e., fully God and fully man), and the trikirion holds three, representing the three persons of the [[Holy Trinity]].
