Icon of Panaghia with Christ. Portable icon from the Castle of Mylopotamos, probably owned by a Venetian official, as is suggested by the buckler preserved on its surface. It is dated to the middle of the 17th century and is influenced by the Cretan School.

From the collection housed in the Post-Byzantine church of the Ascension at Livadi, which was ceded by the Diocese of Kythera.
