Our Holy Father Euthymius of Docheiariou, and his disciple Neophytus.

Commemorated November 9 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

They were Serbs by descent and kinsmen of high-ranking aristocrats in Byzantium. Euthymius was a friend of St Athanasius and his steward Laurus, and later founded the monastery of Docheiariou. He entered peacefully into rest in 990. His nephew Neophytus succeeded his uncle as abbot of Docheiariou, increasing the number of brethren and building a great church. He entered into rest at the beginning of the eleventh century.
