Holy Martyrs Cyril, Menes and Minaios at Viglention


For October 29

To Cyril.
Indeed crowns are promised for the future,
Cyril knew the promise for the sword.

To Mines and Minaios.
Minaios fell by the sword and arrived where he beheld,
And Mines falling by the same met his end.

For August 1

Menes dwells now with his fellow dwellers,
Minaios in no wise comes into wrath.

On October 29th we commemorate the Holy Martyrs Cyril, Mines and Minaios, who met their end by the sword.

On August 1st we commemorate the Holy Martyrs Menes and Minaios and others at the Viglention quarter of Constantinople, near the Bronze Tetrapylon.

It appears that on these two days the same Holy Martyrs are commemorated.
