Our Holy Father Simeon the Ancient.

Commemorated January 26 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

A friend and companion of St Palladius, he lived in asceticism in a cave from his early youth right up to his death. He founded two monasteries and entered into rest in the Lord in the year 390. He was named 'the Ancient' by Simeon Stylites, who lived somewhat later.
