Friends,

 

Can anyone explain how certain deacons in various traditions can supposedly be awarded pectoral crosses (as that worn by Archdeacon of the Ecumenical Throne, John Chryssavgis: https://cruxnow.com/...chryssavgis.jpg) or even the entitlement of staffs (An outline by Archpriest John Udics mentions this as part of the Russian tradition: "Protodeacons were entitled to carry a staff when walking out of doors, its height specified and lower than that of the other clergy. This type of staff is a walking stick with a metal 'cap' on it.")?  I am just wondering, as I have rarely or never seen such things before; thanks!
