Holy Martyr Soleb of Egypt

St. Soleb of Egypt (Feast Day - August 5)

Verses

If you reverse your syllables O Soleb,
You form belos* which was the instrument of your death.

The Holy Martyr Soleb of Egypt met his end with a bow and arrow.

Notes:

* Belos is the Greek word for "arrow," and this couplet in a clever way finds that the name Soleb is a semordnilap of the word Belos.
