Origin of name Sergios – Agios Sergios
Sergios refers to Agios Sergios (Saint Sergios).
Saints Sergios and Bakchos served in the military ranks of Emperor Maximian. They were distinguished due to their great bravery on the battlefield but also due to their prudence in their daily lives. Hence, the emperor awarded them the tenets of the school of Kentilion.
When the emperor learned that two elite soldiers were Christians, he did not want to believe it. To be convinced, he organized ceremonies with sacrifices to the pagan gods and invited Sergios and Bakchos to attend them.
The two Christian soldiers refused and confessed Christ with bold conviction. Enraged, the emperor then removed their medals. Then, after they were mocked in various ways, they were sent to the duke of the East, Antiochus.
With an unprecedented brutality, Antiochus lashed Bacchus to death. In particular, since once he had been benefited by Sergios, he suggested to him to refuse Christ in order to grant him his life. The bold response of Sergios was the words of St. Paul’s “To me life is Christ and the death is gain” (Philippians, 21). He thought that this action would completely unite him with Christ. Then Antiochus immediately gave orders to decapitate Sergios.
