Summary/Abstract: The object of this work is lead-sided icon with the scene of the Annunciation. It is found along with several anonymous Byzantine coins at the vicinity of Shumen. It is essential purpose of the device. The images are engraved, not embossed, because there is missing ring for hanging and there are metal spill in the end. These features relate lead icon rather to a group of models, than to that of the finished products. This is confirmed by the mirror image of the scene. Some similar items found in our land a years ago suggest that a large part of them are the work of local practice and are not subject to import. Lead model that is presented here confirm these observations. The dating of the lead model in XI-XII c. is proved by the Byzantine coins, found with it.
