The holy Martyrs Nicander and Hermias were ordained by the holy Apostle Titus.
When they had drawn many to the Faith of Christ, they were accused
to Libanius, the Count of the city of Myra, where, after suffering
many torments, they were enclosed in a tomb alive, and thus surrendered
their spirits into the hands of God.
Apolytikion in the Second Tone:
As we celebrate the memory of Thy Prophet Nicander, O Lord, through
him we beseech Thee to save our souls.
Kontakion in the Third Tone:
With your preaching as a plough, ye tilled men's souls with your doctrines,
for ye had yourselves been sown by Christ's wise husbandman, Titus.
Wherefore, ye became you Master's martyric harvest, brought to Him
as fruitful sheaves of sacred confession, O Nicander and Hermias,
when ye contested unto the death for His sake.
