Old Russian painted icon

Antique Greek or Russian icon painted panel


A beautiful small icon, hand painted on a wood panel.  I don’t know the specifics of the scene but two saints or holy people, each with a halo done in silver paint.  There is a line of text at the top but I can’t read cyrillic and some of the text has worn away.  The wood panel is smooth from handling and has aged with a lovely old patina.  The number “28” is written on the back in pencil.  The panel is 2 1/2″ x 2 1/4″ x 1/4″ thick, in good antique condition with wear, small dings and small losses of paint.
