Lipetsk Archeologists Discover Frames of Ancient Icons

Lipetsk archeologists have found four frames of ancient icons in Lebedyan. Excavations were carried out in the territory of one of the estates downtown.

The frames were wrapped in newspaper of the Soviet period. Allegedly, the subjects are made of copper alloy. On the frames there are images of the Mother of God and Christ the Savior. It will be extremely difficult to find out who was the owner of the icons. It is not ruled out that the shrines were property of one of Lebedyan churches or were kept in the family of the estate owners. After the revolution they were hidden underground.

Now the issue of transferring the icon frames to the museum of local lore or to one of the churches of the Lipetsk and Yelets diocese is being considered.

The expedition has found a few other interesting finds. In particular, these include pottery of the 18th – early 20th centuries, coins, fragments of clay toys, horseshoes, a bone crest, an oil lamp, sinkers, and a spindle whorl.
