The Glykofilousa is one of those icons that survived the iconoclasm and were miraculously transported to Athos. It was the property of Victoria, the pious wife of the iconoclastic senator Simeon, who, in order not to surrender it, threw it into the sea. The icon, floating upright on the waves, reached the arsana of the Monastery of Filotheos, where it was received with great honour and joy by the abbot and the fathers of the monastery, who had been alerted by a revelation of the Virgin Mary.
