This Icon is from the Convent of the same name. It was built in the 6th century by the Emperor Justinian. He was on his way to the Holy Land and stopped in this area . While hunting he followed a deer who was always ahead of him. Finally the deer stopped and the Mother of God spoke to him through the deer and said that he was to build a church in honor of her in this place.
