Martyr Polyeuctus of Melitene, in Armenia - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyr Polyeuctus, O Lord, / through his suffering has received an incorruptible crown from You, our God. / For having Your strength, he laid low his adversaries, / and shattered the powerless boldness of demons. / Through his intercessions, save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 4

When the Savior bowed his head in the Jordan, / the heads of the dragons were crushed; / when Polyeuctus was beheaded, the deceiver was put to shame.
