As mentioned in the account concerning Saint Demetrius (October 26), this Saint
contested during the reign of Maximian, in the year 290.
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.
Kontakion in the Second Tone:
Well didst thou contest; hence, thou hast now inherited immortal renown,
wise Nestor, and thou art become Christ the Master's excellent soldier
by the holy and fervent prayers of the Martyr Demetrius. Thus, with
him, cease not to pray for all of us.
