Feast Day - February 1st
St. Tryphon was subjected to harsh tortures. He was beaten with clubs, his body was lacerated with iron hooks, and burned with fire. He was led through the city, having iron nails hammered into his feet. Saint Tryphon bravely endured all the torments, not giving out a single whimper. Finally, he was condemned to beheading with a sword. In the Icon we see St. Tryphon holding the iron hook by which he was tortured. In the other hand he has the cross of a martyr. The richly colored robes and facial expression denotes his status in Roman society and his young age.
