The Anthologion (άνθολόγιον, plural anthologia) is a liturgical text that tries to encompasses as much of the basic liturgical text 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:"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.
