Holy Martyr Myrope (or ''Myropea'') was born in the city of Ephesus and is commemorated by the Orthodox Church on [[December 2]].
During the persecution by Decius (249-251), Myrope went with her mother to the island of [[Metropolis of Chios|Chios]], where they spent their time in [[fasting]] and [[prayer]]. Once, by order of the cruel governor of the island, the soldier [[Isidore of Chios|Isidore]] ([[May 14]]), a man of deep faith and great piety, was martyred. Myrope secretly removed the body of the martyr and buried it. The soldiers, who had been ordered not to allow the Christians to take Isidore's body, were sentenced to death.
