The image was property of Victoria, the loyal wife of Simeon's iconoclastic senator. Victoria threw the icon into the see, in order not to surrender it. The image, standing upright in the waves, reached the port of the Monastery of Philotheou. At the point of the coast, where they laid the picture, it smelled like Holy Water.
