Hello I would like help to identify this icon photograph. It is Greek Orthodox icon with a man holding a cross. enter image description here

  • Thank you so much! So interesting! I thought it was a Greek Orthodox saint since my mother-in-law was from Cyprus. My family is from Russia! So nice to have a Russian icon in our home. God Bless! Commented Jun 23, 2022 at 16:37

1 Answer 1


images.google.com led to this orthodoxtimes which seems to indicate this is Saint John the Russian1

the Holy Confessor John the Russian was born in Little Russia around 1690

1 Wiki: John the Russian: many external links at bottom of page contain similar images

Many of the links are not in English. the above article has the image but doesn't specifically state who is in the picture, I'm assuming the content is about the image
