The Church commemorates the Holy Martyrs Plato, who lived in Ancyra (Ankara) in Galatia in the 3rd century, and Romanus, who lived in Antioch in the 4th century.
Saint Plato, at a young age, was arrested by pagans because he firmly proclaimed his faith in Jesus Christ, leading him to Agrippinus, who, seeing his beauty and vigour, and knowing that he had a great fortune, tried to attract him with flatteries. However, Saint Plato refused and continued to proclaim his faith in the one true God. After the ruler saw that he had failed to make him convert by enticing him, he threatened him with martyrdom. Nevertheless, Saint Plato remained steadfast in his faith. So, Agrippinus ordered to ruthlessly whip him.
The Martyr of the Church maintained his faith and did not stop confessing to Jesus Christ, so he beheading was ordered (306 AD). In this way the great martyr Plato entrusted his spirit to the Lord and was honoured with the amaranth wreath of the martyr.
