The Holy Martyr Diomedes.

Commemorated August 16 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

A doctor from Tarsus of eminent parents, he taught the people the Christian faith as he healed them. The Emperor Diocletian ordered that he be beheaded in Nicaea in 298. Those who beheaded him and took his head to the Emperor were blinded, and when they restored the head to his body, with prayer, they were healed.
