Holy Martyr Archontios

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


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

The Holy Martyr Archontios was perfected by starvation.

* Lamia in ancient Greek mythology was a woman who became a child-eating monster. 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.
