Holy Martyrs Apollon (icon), Marcian, Nikander, Hyperekhias, Leonides, Arias, Gorgias, Selinias, Ireneios and Pambonos (3rd-4th cent Egypt) were scourged by Emperor Maximian for worshiping Christ. Barely alive, they were then imprisoned, and an Angel healed their wounds. They died in prison from hunger and thirst. (Jun 5)
In the year 326 St Hypatius returned from Constantinople to gangrene in the wilderness. He was attacked by followers and dissenters. Heretics wounded him with swords and staves and threw him from a high bank into the swamp. One woman struck the saint on the head with a stone and he died. The killer hid the body of the martyr in a cave where he was found by a farmer. He hastened to inform the city whose residents honorably buried the relics of their beloved Archbishop.
