Summary/Abstract: The text is a contribution to the investigation of the work of two icon-painters (zographs) from Samokov, Christo Dimitrov and Dimiter Christov, containing attributions of hitherto unpublished icons in Macedonia. To Christo Dimitrov are ascribed the icon of St John of Rila (Ivan Rilski) in the church of St Nicholas in Shtip (ca 1810), two royal icons in the church of the Nativity of the Virgin at St Joachim Osogovski Monastery from 1810, as well as the murals in the dome of the church of St John the Baptist (Prodromos) at St John (Jovan) Bigorski Monastery from 1800. In Dimiter Ch​ristov’s workshop at Samokov were executed the icon of the Virgin Galactotrophousa with Saints, now in a private collection in Skopje (ca 1830), six royal icons from before 1847 at the St Nicholas church in Rankovce village near Kriva Palanka, an icon of Sts Constantine and Helena of 1847 in Skopje, ten royal icons from 1859 at the Archangel Michael church in Orizari village near Ko ani, three icons from ca 1850 at the St George church in Ko ani, and four royal icons at the Archangel Michael church in Spanchevo village, district of Ko ani, which were probably painted between 1845 and 1850.
