For the Greek Orthodox church Dimos is a man who lived in Adrianoupolis and worked as a fisherman. He had trouble with the Turk owner of a fish shop, who said that Dimos accepted to become a Turk.

Dimos refused that and was brought to the ruler of the city and again remained faithful to his beliefs. Dimos was put to prison and he was brutally tortured.

On April 10th 1763 he was condemned to death by decapitation. The corps of the young man was buried in the Temple of St George in Smyrne, and his tomb became a place of Pilgrim for the Christians.
