A combination between Legend and Icon.


Licon (plural Licons)

1. A story of unknown image, picture, or other representational origin describing plausible but extraordinary past events.

2. A story in which a kernel of truth is embellished to an unlikely degree often done on wooden panels.

3. A leading protagonist in a historical legendary person or thing that is the best example of a certain profession or some doing.

4. Any person of extraordinary accomplishment which represents something.
