Venerable Markianos of Cyprus

St. Markianos of Cyprus (Feast Day - January 18)


And Markianos contested in an unusual contest,
Not towards blood but against the rulers of darkness.

On this day we commemorate our Venerable Father Markianos of Cyprus. We do not have any other information about this Saint, though some have argued that the Synaxarion of Constantinople has a typo here and meant to commemorate our Venerable Father Markianos of Cyrus, though the latter has a separate feast day on November 2nd, where the details of his life can be found.
