It looks like there is an error in the icon.  There appear to be letters missing here and there.  It is likely supposed to be from Zachariah 1:3: επιστρέψατε πρός με, λέγει Κύριος των δυνάμεων - Turn unto me, says the LORD of hosts.

I'll try and investigate it further.

I can read Greek passably well and I find that impossible.

If you don't have an answer by the end of the day I'll ask my yiayia and/or papou.

Indeed fr the "ἐξεκέντησαν" part is written with an ypsilon: "ἐξεκέντυσαν
It's from John 19:37 (referring to Zechariah's prophecy):
"They shall look on him whom they pierced" (KJV)
"Καὶ ὄψονται πρός με, πρός ὅν ἐξεκέντησαν"

Thank you so much! And thanks to everyone that helped! Smiley

Edit: It is from Crete. I don't know if that explains the spelling oddities.

No-one on my facebook could read it, either.

I feel better about my own Greek proficiency now, haha.
