Holy Martyr Okeanos

St. Okeanos the Martyr (Feast Day - September 12)


Okeanos is perceived as bright as the sun,
Bathing in fire, as if in the ocean.

The Holy Martyr Okeanos met his end by fire.

He is probably the Okeanos martyred with the Holy Martyrs Centurionus, Theodore, Ammianus and Julian, who are commemorated on September 4th. In some calendars for September 4th, such as the Menologion of Basil II, he is known as Kion, but he is not listed with them in the Synaxarion of Constantinople. These Holy Martyrs were martyred in Nicomedia in the year 288, who after undergoing various tortures had their feet cut off with an axe and then were cast into the flames.
