Saint Haralambos lived in the reign of the Emperor Septimus Severus (193-211) and died a martyr, persecuted for preaching Christianity. Many were converted through his steadfastness and fortitude in the face of suffering. He is traditionally depicted as a bishop holding the gospel in his left hand and blessing with his right. His feast is celebrated on 10th February.
