The upper left corner of this icon contains an image of the Mother of God, Joy of Those Who Suffer. In the top right corner are St. Quiricus and his mother, St. Julitta, who were martyred in Tarsus in Asia Minor in about 304. They both hold martyr’s crosses and are surrounded by scenes from their lives: the birth of Quiricus, their confrontation with the Roman governor Alexander, the flogging of Julitta and the beheading of Julitta. At bottom right, seven saints reverence the crucified Christ. In the lower left corner is an image of the Mother of God, Intercessor for the Lost.
