Born in Theia Kome of Phrygia, Eutychius was the son of illustrious parents,
from whom he received a pious upbringing. He studied in Constantinople,
and became a monk in a certain monastery of Amasia. In 552 he was chosen
Patriarch of New Rome, but was exiled in 565 as a result of the machinations
of the Origenists. In 577 he was restored to his throne and reposed
on April 6, 582.

The truth of things hath revealed thee to thy flock as a rule of faith, an
icon of meekness, and a teacher of temperance; for this cause, thou hast
achieved the heights by humility, riches by poverty. O Father and Hierarch
Eutychios, intercede with Christ God that our souls be saved.
Kontakion in the
O divine Eutychius, to all that praise thee, thou dost give abundant gifts
of holy joy and grace divine from that which God hath bestowed on thee, O rightful
namesake of blessed prosperity.
