The holy Martyr Sabine was from Hermopolis in Egypt, and was known for his zeal
and piety. During the persecution of Diocletian, he concealed himself
with other Christians in a small dwelling outside the city. But when
he was discovered, and professed his faith in Christ, he was taken
before Arian the Governor, and after he had been tortured he was drowned
in the river. Concerning Arian the Governor, See also December 14.
Apolytikion in the Fourth Tone:
Thy Martyr, O Lord, in his courageous contest for Thee received the prize of
the crowns of incorruption and life from Thee, our immortal God. For since
he possessed Thy strength, he cast down the tyrants and wholly destroyed
the demons' strengthless presumption. O Christ God, by his prayers, save
our souls, since Thou art merciful.
