Holy Three Thousand Six Hundred and Twenty-Eight (3,628) Martyrs of Nicomedia

Holy 3,628 Martyrs of Nicomedia (Feast Day - September 4)

Verses

Six hundred and three times a thousand athletes together,
You united with the Angels above O Christ.

These Saints hid in the mountains and caves of Nicomedia in the year 290, who were first punished by Emperor Maximian with various tortures, and finally put to death. In this way they received the crowns of the contest.
