Book of Saints – Herodion, Asyncritus and Phlegon


(Saints) Martyrs (April 8) (1st century) Herodion, whom Saint Paul (Romans 16:11) styles his kinsman, with Asyncritus and Phlegon, likewise mentioned by the Apostle, are believed to have been among the seventytwo disciples sent forth as missionaries by Our Lord Himself (Luke 10:1). The tradition is that all three became Bishops, Herodion of Patras, Asyncritus of Marathon and Phlegon of Hyrcania; and that all three were done to death by the Pagans at the instigation of the Jews.
