Holy Martyrs Thyrsus and Agnes

Sts. Thyrsus and Agnes the Martyrs (Feast Day - January 20)


Thyrsus and Agnes loved Christ,
They loved death and were altogether glad.

On this day we commemorate the Holy Martyrs Thyrsus and Agnes. We know nothing of their life or martyrdom. Their Synaxis took place next to the Elenianon, which was the Helenianae Palace of Constantinople built by Helen the mother of Constantine the Great probably in Kserolophos (todays Cerrahpasa neighborhood). It was near the Forum of Arcadius on the seventh hill.
