Holy Myriad (or Ten Thousand) Martyrs

Holy Myriad Martyrs (Feast Day - June 13)

Verses

Victorious a myriad fell by the sword,
Fallen also were the victorious phalanx of God.

The Holy Myriad (or Ten Thousand) Martyrs met their end by the sword.

We do not know when or where their martyrdom took place or who they were, but we similarly commemorate 10,000 Martyrs two other times in the ecclesiastical calendar, on March 18th and July 10th.
