'''Anthologion''', or '''Anthologue''', is a [[church]] book that has been in use among the [[Greeks]].

The Anthologion (''άνθολόγιον'') is a liturgical text that tries to encompasses as much of the basic liturgical textas as possible. An example of this text in Greek is the ''Synekthimos''. A Slavonic example is the ''Velikij Sbnornik''. The closest thing we have in English is the text:[http://www.light-n-life.com/shopping/order_product.asp?ProductNum=BOOK110 "Divine Prayers and Services of the Catholic Orthodox Church of Christ", by Fr. Seraphim Nassar]—commonly known as "The Nassar Five-Pounder."

Anthologia usually contain the daily the basic text of the Horologion, the Sunday Octoechos, the General Menaion, and Selections from the Menaion, Triodion, and Pentecostarion.
