The holy, glorious and right-victorious Hieromartyr Nicander of Myra (also Nikandros) was the first Bishop of Myra.1 He, with his fellow martyr, the priest Hermas, were followers of Apostle Titus, who had ordained them. He shares a feast day with Hermas the priest on November 4.


Troparion — Tone 4

In your manner a participant, / And in your throne a successor of the Apostles, / You discovered action an entrance into visions, / O inspired one of God. / Therefore directing the Word of truth, / You suffered for the faith even unto blood. / O Bishop and Martyr Nicander, pray to Christ God that our souls may be saved!
