Handmade Byzantine Icon of Monk-Martyr Saint Anastasius, the Persian.
Saint Anastasius the Persian was born in the region of Rasnuni with the name Magundat. After many miracles performed by the Holy Cross, Magundat converted to Christianity and was baptized in Jerusalem, by taking the name Anastasius.
During his visit to Caesarea, the commander Marzavanas ordered the torture and beheading of Saint Anastasius, because he remained faithful to Christianity and did not deny Jesus Christ.
