Lives of Saints - 45 Holy Martyrs of Nikopolis, Armenia Christianity - Books
I tell you, my friends, don't be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.                But I will warn you whom you should fear. Fear him, who after he has killed, has power to cast into Gehenna. Yes, I tell you, fear him.                Aren't five sparrows sold for two assaria coins? Not one of them is forgotten by God.                But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore don't be afraid. You are of more value than many sparrows.                I tell you, everyone who confesses me before men, him will the Son of Man also confess before the angels of God;                but he who denies me in the presence of men will be denied in the presence of the angels of God.

45 Holy Martyrs of Nikopolis, Armenia
   

The Forty-five Martyrs of Nicopolis contested during the reign of Licinius, in the year 315. After many torments, they were burnt alive.

Apolytikion in the Fourth Tone:
Thy Martyrs, O Lord, in their courageous contest for Thee received as the prize the crowns of incorruption and life from Thee, our immortal God. For since they possessed Thy strength, they cast down the tyrants and wholly destroyed the demons' strengthless presumption. O Christ God, by their prayers, save our souls, since Thou art merciful.

Kontakion in the Plagal of the Fourth Tone:
For love of Christ our God, ye endured many torments valiantly, destroying polytheistic idolatry, O Martyrs of Nicopolis; and by Christ's mighty power, ye destroyed all the error of wicked godlessness. Teach us with faith and boldness to cry aloud: Alleluia.
