Stachys the Apostle in Wikipedia
Stachys the Apostle (Greek: Στάχυς "ear-spike"), was the first
bishop of Byzantium, from AD 38 to AD 54. He seemed to be
closely connected to Saint Andrew and Saint Paul. Eusebius
quotes Origen as saying that Andrew had preached in Asia Minor
and in Scythia, along the Black Sea as far as the Volga and
Kiev, hence he became a patron saint of Romania and Russia.
According to tradition, he founded the See of Byzantium in 38,
installing Stachys as bishop (the only bishopric in that
neighbourhood before that time had been established at
Heraclea). This See would later develop into the Patriarchate
of Constantinople, having Apostle Andrew as its Patron Saint.
It was not clear if Stachys was the same person as the one
Paul calls "dear" in the Epistle to the Romans (Rom. 16:9).
His feast day is on October 31.
