The Many Martyrs of Eugenius, near Constantinople.

Commemorated February 22 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

In the time of the Emperor Arcadius, the relics of many Christian martyrs were excavated, among which were those of the Apostle Andronicus and his helper, Junia (Rom. 16:7). These relics were discovered by a revelation from God to a certain cleric, Nicolas Calligraphus. 'God alone knows their names, and He has written them in the Book of Life in heaven.' The Emperor Andronicus the First built a fine church over the relics of his namesake in the 12th century.
