Byzantine Hand Painted Icon of Saint Alexander, Patriarch of Alexandria.
Saint Alexander was the Patriarch of Alexandria from 313 AD and was known for his spiritual gifts, as well as his devotion to the Word of God. He stood in favor of the Orthodox faith and vigorously fought heresies, such as Arianism during the First Ecumenical Council in Nicaea, Bithynia.
He died peacefully in 326 AD after appointing Saint Athanasios the Great as his successor.
