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.
