Father Justin of Sinai presented this icon in a lecture, and I'm unsure as to its proper name, or if anyone offers a replicated version? Thank you!

This Russian site has information about it http://lib.pstgu.ru/...le&id=85088943<

It seems to be Panagia Glykophilousa Kykkotissa ie associated with Kykkos Monastery, Cyprus. Olga will correct me if I'm mistaken.

It is indeed the Kykkotissa, as Andreas said. It is of the type also known as Axion Estin (It is truly meet), so named because the Christ-child is holding a long scroll in His right hand, on which are the words to the well-known hymn to the Mother of God.
