Christian ordered to sacrifice to pagan idols during the persecutions of Diocletian. Thinking that Saint Philemon of Antinoë was a pagan, he asked him to switch clothes and offer the sacrifice in his place. Philemon announced in front of the pagans that he was a Christian, too. Shamed, Apollonius confessed his faith, was tortured and executed. Martyr.
