Nestor-In the time of the suffering of St. Demetrios the Myrrh-streamer, there was a young man of Thessalonica, Nestor who learned of the Christian faith from St. Demetrios, himself. At that time, Christ?s enemy, Emperor Maximian, organized various games and amusements for the people. The Emperor?s favorite in these games was a vandal named Lyaeus, a giant of a man of great strength. As the Emperor?s gladiator, Lyaeus challenged every man to a single combat, and slew them.
