Five Holy Martyrs - Cross

The enclosed religious site of the five Holy Martyrs (Pente Osiomartyres) contains small churches and dedicatory plaques in honor of five of the Lipsi priests and monks of the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian of Patmos. According to tradition, they lived and worked on Lipsi in the 16th and 17th centuries AD, until they were murdered by pirates or Turks. Their names are Neophyte Amorginos (1558), Monk Ionas (1561), Neophyte Fazos (1609), Ionas Nisyrios (1635), and Monk Parthenios (1696). This is the large cross in the middle of the area.
