The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Philologos (also Philologus) is numbered among the Seventy Apostles, and is commemorated with them on January 4. He is also commemorated on November 5 together with Ss. Patrobas, Hermas, Linus, and Gaius.

The Apostle Andrew consecrated St. Philologos (Romans 16:15) as bishop of Sinope, a city in the region of the Black Sea.

Hymns

Troparion (Tone 3) [1]

Holy apostle Philologus of the Seventy;
Entreat the merciful;
To grant our souls forgiveness of transgressions.

Kontakion (Tone 4) [2]

The Church ever sees you as a shining star, O apostle Philologus,
Your miracles have manifested great enlightenment.
Therefore we cry out to Christ:
"Save those who with faith honor Your apostle, O Most Merciful One."
