The Holy Martyr Dometios was a Phrygian by birth who met his end by the sword in 361 under Julian the Apostate. He is said to have provoked his own arrest by publicly attacking the error of worshiping and sacrificing to idols in the theater of Caesarea in where people had gathered for the festival games to honor their gods. For this he was ordered to be beheaded with several other Christians.
