Synaxarion of the Holy Martyrs Nestor and Tribimios

Sts. Nestor and Tribimios (Feast Day - March 2)


The neck of Nestor was struck by the sword, 
A similar wound crushed Tribimios.

These Saints were from the land of the Cibyrrhaeots, from Perge in Pamphylia. During the reign of Emperor Decius, in the year 251, they were betrayed by the idolaters, and scourged with dry ox-hide. After this they were suspended, and were flayed to the point where their inwards parts were exposed. Because they remained steadfast in the faith of Christ, they were beheaded, and in this way the renowned ones received the crown of martyrdom.
