Bedia Chalice inscription Wikipedia
The Bedia Chalice inscription (Georgian: ბედიის ბარძიმის წარწერა) is the Georgian language inscription written in the Georgian Asomtavruli script on the golden chalice of Bedia Cathedral, a medieval Georgian Orthodox cathedral located in Abkhazia, Georgia. Surface of chalice is divided into 12 arches. Under each arch there is depicted each figure, which includes Virgin Mary, Jesus sitting on the throne and ten apostles. Chalice later lost a strut and in 16th century it was restored by the Metropolitan of Bedia, Germane Chkhetidze. The chalice inscription mentions King Bagrat III of Georgia with his mother, Queen Gurandukht who was a daughter of King George II of Abkhazia.
