Greek version of the Martyrdom of Akindynos, Pegasios, Aphthonios, Elpidephoros and Anempodistos (BHG 21-22)

We have not examined this text, nor compared it to stories of the martyrdom in other languages. It is believed to be based on a Martyrdom originally written in Syriac.

Note that translations of hagiographical literature into other ancient languages are not as a rule recorded in the Cult of Saints database, unless there is evidence to suggest that the translation dates from the 7th century or earlier.
