Here are the names of some following Saints on
In the front center is St. Alexander Nevsky; to the left of him St. Nicholas and St. George. To the right of St. Alexander Nevsky is St. Barbara and St. Eudokia the Nun. Behind her is St. Helen.
All Names of these Saints are written on the Icon, but because of age it is hard to read all of them. Because of this we are still not sure about the names of other male Saints on this Icon.
