Martyr Victor and those with him at Corinth

Commemorated on March 10

Sts Victor, Nicephorus and Victorinus were disciples of St Quadratus, and were crushed in a large stone press.

Troparion - Tone 1
Let the godly–minded Quadratus, Anectus, Paul, Dionysius, Cyprian, and Crescens
Be praised with melodious hymns,
For as the six–fold choir of Christ’s prize–winners,
They ceaselessly pray for us before the Trinity!

Kontakion - Tone 4
As you contested bravely in Corinth, O wise martyrs,
You appeared as a six–branched radiant lamp.
Illumining the way for Christ’s faithful by the grace that was given you!
