Translated headword: Amachios, Amachius
Vetting Status: high
This man was the chief official of a small Phrygian city under Julian the Apostate,[1] and a fanatical pagan. As the shrines were open, a certain Makedonios and Theodoulos and Tatianos[2] in zeal for Christianity burst in at night and destroyed the statues. They endured many hardships and punishments on account of this and were set upon grills and punished by fire. They showed their valour then by saying: "Amachios, if you want to get a taste of roast meat, turn us over on our other sides lest we seem to you half-roasted to the taste." And thus they died.
