The holy, glorious, all-laudable Apostle Artemas of the Seventy is commemorated by the Church on October 30 together with Sts Tertius, Mark, Cleopas, and Justus and on January 4 with the Seventy.

St Artemas was bishop of the Lycian city of Lystra, and he died in peace. St Paul mentions him in his Epistle to Titus (3:12), I shall send Artemas unto thee.


Troparion (Tone) 3 [1]

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

Kontakion (Tone 4)

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