About The Event

After the death of the 20,000 Martyrs of Nicomedia, their Bishop  Anthimus fled to a certain village to care for his remaining flock. The  Emperor Maximian sent men in search of him. When they found him, he  promised to show Anthimus to them, but first took them in as guests, fed  them, and only then made himself known to them. Amazed at his kindness,  the soldiers promised him to tell Maximian that they had not found him.  But Anthimus went willingly with them, and converting them by his  admonitions, baptized them on the way. He boldly confessed his Faith  before Maximian, and after frightful tortures was beheaded in the year  303 or 304.
