Of these Saints, Olympas and Rodion became disciples of Peter, the chief Apostle,
and came to Rome, where they were beheaded by Nero. The others reposed
in peace, having become bishops: Sosipater of Iconium, Quartus of Beirut,
and Erastus of Paneas, or Paneias (which was also called Caesarea of
Philippi); Saint Erastus had been chamberlain of the city of Corinth
Apolytikion in the Third Tone:
O Holy Apostles, intercede to our merciful God, that He may grant our
souls forgiveness of sins.
Kontakion in the Fourth Tone:
The most solemn festival of the Apostles hath this day appeared to
us and manifestly doth bestow divine forgiveness of trespasses on
all that faithfully keep their memorial.
