Icon of the Mother of God of Galatea

The Galatea Icon of the Mother of God is found in Galatea (one of the districts of Constantinople), at Perge (in a tower). In honor of the holy icon a monastery was formed, which existed until the seventeenth century. An exact copy of the icon is located in Moscow, in the Church of St Tikhon, at the Arbat Gate.

The Galatea Icon is of the Hodigitria type.
