Saint Theodore Tyro, Byzantine Wooden Icon
Patmos Monastery, Greece, 1200AD

Marvelous art image of Patmos monastery, which dates back to 1200 and does not repeat the previously known typical representation of the Saint. Wood, measuring 33 cm. ( "Masterpieces of Patmos Monastery", K. KOUMOUNDOUROU / Athens / 1995)

Referenced on p.14, MAA 89 Byzantine Armies AD 1118-1461 by Ian Heath & Angus McBride
Military saint from a 13th century icon, with characteristic Byzantine long triangular shield. The face of the shield appears to be decorated with small crosses, while the inner surface is painted with vertical blue and white stripes and red spots.
