The Panagia Glykophilousa or "Sweet-kissing" icon depicts the Theotokos holding her son so that they appear to be kissing.

Glykophiloussa of Philotheo monastery (Athos)

Like the Panagia Portaitissa is one of the icons saved from the Iconoclastic Controversy and brought miraculously to Athos. It was the property of Victoria, the devout wife of the eikonomachos senator Symeon, who, in order to have to hand it over, threw it into the sea. The icon, floating upright on the waves, reached the arsanas of the Monastery of Philotheou, where it was received with great honour and rejoicing by the Abbot and fathers of the Monastery, who had been warned of its advent by a revelation of the Theotokos. At the point on the shore where they placed the icon, holy water gushed out. There each year on the Monday of the Diakainisimi Week, there is a procession and blessing with holy water.[1]
