Orthodox Icon Saint Eleftherios in natural rombolo pine wood. This Icon is handcrafted on canvas by a craftsman and embossed according to the style and tradition of Byzantine art.
Saint Eleftherios was born in the 2nd century AD in Greece (according to others in Rome) to wealthy parents. Then emperor was Commodus and Septinus Severus. Orphaned by his father, he was brought up according to the dictates of the Gospel by his pious and philanthropic mother, Anthia (son of Evanthia, verse of Vesperinos) (see same day) who became a Christian by listening to the preaching of apostle Paul’s disciples.
