Commemoration of the Holy Martyr Mamas Over at the Sigma

 Holy Martyr Mamas Over at the Sigma (Feast Day - July 12)


If I cannot give you a gift of honor Mamantos,
How can I appear to be a friend of Martyrs?

This Saint Mamas probably refers to the same Holy Martyr commemorated on September 2nd. On this day, there appears to have been a Synaxis at a shrine dedicated to Saint Mamas in the Sigma section of Constantinople. The Sigma is known to have been located above the Peribleptos Monastery. Next to the location of this monastery, in 1888 there was found a plaque on which the name "Mamas" was written, which could indicate the location of this church dedicated to Saint Mamas.
