Martyr Agathopus of Crete - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 3

Let us honor Crete which brought forth these flowers, boughs of martyrs, pearls of Christ. / They shamed the thousand-fold power of demons although they only number ten. / Therefore, they have been crowned as Christ’s valiant martyrs.

Kontakion — Tone 3

The noble struggle of the martyrs / Shines forth as the morning star, / Shedding brilliant light for us / On the One who was born in the cave / To whom the Virgin gave birth without human seed.
