You don't need to use the Icon class, but the Image class
Image img =3D new Image("gtk-save", IconSize.Menu);

It is also possible to show a menu if a user clicks on the image, but
you need to add the Image to an EventBox, since an Image cannot fire

EventBox eb =3D new EventBox();
EventBox.Add(new Image("gtk-save", IconSize.Menu);
EventBox.ButtonPressEvent +=3D new ButtonPressEventHandler (OnImageClick);

private void OnImageClick (object o, ButtonPressEventArgs args)
   if (args.Event.Button =3D=3D 3) { //right click
      Menu popupMenu =3D new Menu();
      MenuItem menuPopup1 =3D new MenuItem ("Popup item 1");
      popupMenu.Add (menuPopup1);
      popupMenu.Popup (null, null, null, IntPtr.Zero,
args.Event.Button, args.Event.Time);

      popupMenu.ShowAll ();

But are you sure you really want a stock image with a menu popping up
if the user clicks the image? there are nice ways of doing someting
similar, like a Toolbar with a Gtk.MenuToolButton (some sort of combo
box) or ...
