Saint Nicetas lived in the eighth century and became the Abbot of the Monastery
of Medicium, which was near the city of Triglia on the Sea of Marmara.
For his Orthodox confession of the veneration of the holy icons, he
was persecuted and exiled twice by the Iconoclast Emperor Leo the Armenian,
but recalled by Michael the Stutterer, and reposed, adorned with the
twofold crown of holiness and of confession of the Orthodox Faith,
about the year 824.
Apolytikion in the Plagal of the Fourth Tone:
You are a guide of Orthodoxy, a teacher of piety and modesty, a luminary of
the world, the God inspired pride of monastics. O wise Nikitas, you have
enlightened everyone by your teachings. You are the harp of the Spirit. Intercede
to Christ our God for the salvation of our souls.
