Handmade Byzantine Icon of Saint Hierotheus Hieromartyr, Bishop of Athens.
Saint Hierotheus was a member of the Supreme Court of Athens. Listening to the preaching of the Apostle Paul, he was convinced to embrace Christianity and, because of his virtues, he was ordained Bishop of Athens.
His work was continued by his student Saint Dionysius the Areopagite, who made great progress.
Saint Hierotheus passed away peacefully at an old age and his holy skull is kept on Mount Athos.
