Martyr Heliodorus and 30 others in Pisidia and Phrygia

The Holy Martyrs Alexander, Alpheius, Zosimus, Mark the Shepherd, Nikon, Neon, Heliodorus and others suffered for confessing the Christian Faith in various places of Asia Minor during the reign of Diocletian (284-305).

Saints Nikon, Neon, Heliodorus and other young men and women saw all the idols in the temple of Artemis fall down and smash to pieces when they carried the head of Saint Mark the Shepherd inside. They believed in Christ, confessed their faith and died as martyrs at Maromilium.
