Martyr Agathonicus of Nicomedia

Commemorated August 22 with others who suffered under Maximian

Troparion - Tone 4

Your holy martyr Agathonícus and his companions, O Lord, through their sufferings have received incorruptible crowns from You, our God. For having Your strength, they laid low their adversaries, and shattered the powerless boldness of demons. Through their intercessions, save our souls!

Kontakion - Tone 1

Having received the good calling, divinely-wise one, you abandoned the cult of evil men, not fearing their tortures, glorious Agathonícus. Therefore, you have inherited good things, and worthily received the incorruptible crown with your fellow martyrs.
