Saint Myron of CyzicusArticle

(Saint) Martyr (August 17) (3rd century) A priest in charge of a church in Greece. At the coming of Imperial officers, under Decius (A.D. 250), to wreck the sacred building and arrest such Christians as they might find about it, Myron boldly faced them and made his protest against the iniquitous law of the Pagan Emperor. The Saint was subjected to torture on the spot, but was sent for execution to Cyzicus on the Sea of Marmora.
