The Hieromartyr Nestor, Bishop of Magydos.

Commemorated February 28 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

Nestor was distinguished by great meekness. In the time of Decius, he was taken for trial and harshly tortured for Christ. At the time of his death, he saw in a vision a lamb prepared for sacrifice, which he interpreted as a sign of his own imminent sacrifice. He was tortured by the Eparch Publius and finally crucified in Perga in the year 250.
