The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Amplias is numbered among the Seventy Apostles. Along with the Apostles Urban, Stachys, Narcissus, Apelles and Aristobulus he assisted the Apostle Andrew. St. Andrew ordained St. Amplias bishop in Lydda of Odyssopolis (Diospolis) in Judea. He died a martyr, and his feast day is October 31.

Hymns

Troparion (Tone 3)

Holy Apostles of the Seventy: Stáchys, Amplías, Úrban,
Narcíssus, Apélles, and Aristobúlus,
entreat the merciful God
to grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.

Kontakion (Tone 8)

Let us thankfully praise the wise Apostles
Stáchys, Amplías, Úrban, Narcíssus, Apélles, and Aristobúlus,
those treasures of the Holy Spirit and rays of the Sun of glory,
who were gathered together by the grace of our God.
