Panagia Soumela or Panagia Soumeliotissa was painted by St. Luke the Evangelist according to tradition. The icon predates the historic Monastery of Panagia Soumela (386-1923), which was built at Trapezounta in Pontus. | The name “Soumela” comes from the Greek phrase “Stou Mela” (i.e. “at mount Melas”) and consequently signifies a particular locality in Pontus. In the Pontic Greek dialect it is pronounced “sou Mela”. Hence the meaning, “Panagia at Mt. Mela”.
