From the Menaion - 1 February


On February first, we commemorate the holy martyr Tryphon.

Tryphon, what was your fate? "Under the blow of a sword, I found death." When did you depart? "At the new moon." In February, Tryphon was enrolled as the first.

By his holy prayers, O our God, take pity on us and save us. Amen.
