Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the icon of St Anastasia the Pharmakolytria with eight scenes from her life, originally belonging to the Monastery of St Anastasia on the island of the same name across from Burgas, now kept at the Church of the Dormition of the Theotokos, Burgas. The icon, presumably of the patron saint, was made by painter Demetrios and is dated to 1789. It is one of the three known icons with scenes from her life in the Balkans, and five of the total of eight scenes depicted on it occur only here.
