Holy Martyr Archontios

St. Archontios the Martyr (Feast Day - September 3)

Verses

Archontios starved and hence was worn out,
The ruler of this world is a noetic lamia.
*

The Holy Martyr Archontios met his end by starvation.

* Lamia in ancient Greek mythology was a woman who became a child-eating monster, much like a witch. Here the devil is described as a lamia for devouring the children of God, as opposed to Archontios who starved to death for his love of God.
