Venerable Akepsimas

Venerable Akepsimas (Feast Day - January 29)

Verses

Akepsimas rejoices at the stripping off of his flesh,
Which now dead is arranged to enter the earth.

Today we commemorate Venerable Akepsimas.

Though we are told nothing else about him for this day, he is most likely the same person as Venerable Akepsimas of Cyrus commemorated on November 3rd, though some have argued it can even be the Holy Martyr Akepsimas also commemorated on November 3rd.
