Peter of Argos
St Peter was born in Constantinople in 855. St Peter died at the age of 70 and was buried in Argos. Five hundred years later the Venetians and the Franks raided Argos and Greece and took away the saint's relics.
Local churchmen, who began searching for the relics of St Peter in the early 1990s, traced them to a monastery chapel near Rome. On 19 January 2008 the relics were ceremoniously returned by Vatican clerics to the residents of Argos –in Greece’s Peloponnese.
