Holy Martyr Agapion

St. Agapion the Roman (Feast Day - November 22)


Agapion departed having not been harmed by the wild beasts,
Even wild animals regarded him with affection.

The Holy Martyr Agapion met his end, after having confessed Christ as the true God, and he was delivered over to be devoured by wild beasts, but miraculously he remained unharmed by them. Some sources call him Agapion the Roman.
