Origin of name Theonymphi – The 40 Virgins

Name Theonymphi in the Orthodox Calendar is one of the 40 Virgins.

Ammoun or Ammon was a Deacon at Adrianople in Thrace and teacher of the anchoress 40 virgins. The ruler of Adrianople Vavdos  sent him with his 40 students to Licinius,  the lord of Orakis,  since he refused to sacrifice to idols.

The Fourty Virgins were tortured brutally: the first ten were burned alive, eight were decapitated, ten were killed with a sword and the remaining twelve women were killed with knives and molten iron in their mouth.

In particular Ammoun was killed after Licinius put a red-hot metal hood on his head (others say that Amoun was decapitated).

Theonymphi was one of the 40 Virgins, and thus the nameday of Theonymphi is celebrated on September 1st.
