Saint Serapion the New

Saint Serapion (Σεραπίων) lived in Alexandria during the reign of Emperor Severus (222-235). He was a devout man who did whatever was beneficial. He was arrested by the archon Aquila, and when he was asked what religion he followed, he confessed courageously that he believed in Christ and honored Him.

The archon was furious when he heard the Saint's reply, and so he was thrown into a fire and was burnt alive, thereby receiving the incorruptible crown of martyrdom from the Lord.
