This wonderful icon has been created with the technique of lithography and has a double varnish to ensure waterproof and duration in time. The creator of this icon has learned the canonization of iconography in workshops of the Monasteries of Mount Athos, where he was taught both the technique of lithography and the process of handmade artificial ageing.


Saint Neomartyr Apostolos the Younger was born in the village of Agios Lavrentios. Disillusioned at a young age, he emigrated at the age of 15 to Istanbul, where he worked in a tavern in the city and lived, despite his young age, Christian and intelligent. His compatriots from Agios Lavrentios also arrived in the city to protest the unjust taxation. But three of them were imprisoned. Defending the rights of his compatriots, who hurried to meet him there, and slandering him as a instigator of the protest of his fellow villagers, he was arrested by the Turks and pressured, first with orders and promises and then tortured and insidiously changed.

His remains were dumped in the Bosphorus, while only the Holy Cross was rescued by some Christians and handed over to the Patriarchate. In 1795 he was transferred to his hometown, the town of Agios Lavrentios, and since then his memory is honored in his hometown and throughout Magnesia with special magnificence on August 16, focusing on his majestic temple (where his house was located). and with the participation of thousands of believers from many parts of Greece.
