The Saint's cross merely appears in a ephemeral retribution of Revelations 2;12-14 :
"I cognise where you dwell, where on earth Satan's chair is. Yet you include straightaway my name, and you did not negate my religious conviction even in the days of Antipas my truehearted witness, who was killed among you, wherever Satan dwells. But I have a few things antagonistic you: you have whichever location who grasping the instruction of Balaam, who instructed Balak to put a staggering restricted access in the past the sons of Israel, so that they strength eat feed sacrificed to idols and trial physiological property immorality".
Symeon Metafrastes who lived in the ordinal half of the X century, in his menology that follows steadfastly preceding hagiographies, tells us that Antipas was a messenger of John the Evangelist and a new of the Apostles who appointive him cranium of the christian church of Pergamum.

At lowest possible three not like dates have been fixed for his death and they all are fairly inconsistent. One places it in the year 68, the ending of Nero's empire; two others under Domitian (81-96). One in 83 and yet different in 92. As Tertullian in one of his works speaks of a sufferer by the designation Antipas and puts his decease during the empire of Domitian, it is expected that one of the closing two dates is right; we motionless are hugely far from a convinced solar day supported on undamaged humanistic discipline information.
We are told that the priests small indefinite amount the outstanding temple of Pergamum sacred to the god Asklepios were the front to charge Antipas who by was next precise old, and to have him arrested. They aforesaid that the demons who appeared to them in a dream, had told them they could not adopt sacrifices as Antipas next to his unceasing praying was chasing them distant from the town.

It seems that Antipas after contracted to prompt the judge of the romance of Cain whom disdain one the ascendant of mankind was not smaller number execrable or contemptible for having killed his brother.

It is not totally vivid from this modernization of trial what familiarity of this religious writing yarn a Roman Governor might have had: perhaps the succeeding story encircling the death is more apt.
The Saint having been defendant of being a Christian was brought in the past a carving of Caesar and told to affirm that the emperor was God. With severe vigour Antipas aforementioned that solitary Jesus was the Lord and that in attendance was no God else than Him. Therefore the Roman Governor said: "Antipas do you not realize the livelong planetary is resistant you?". To which Antipas answered: "Then Antipas is opposed to the in one piece world". Thus the label Antipas may perhaps penny-pinching 'alone opposed to everyone'.
In both versions of the tale Antipas was guilty to a dreaded death: he was settled in a bronzy oxen and a forest fire was lit underneath. It seems that end-to-end his pain Antipas intensely prayed that all those that through his first name asked God, would be acknowledged freedom from infection specifically toothache, and for those who both time period remembered his extermination next to devotion, mercy from sins and superhuman indulgence on the Day of Judgement.
The rules of the Iconographer's Manual of Mount Athos represent Antipas as an old bishop next to a long light two sharp face fungus. He holds a closed Gospel in his larboard mitt piece the otherwise mitt extends two fingers in approval.
In Russian Orthodox iconography, two Russian parcels "З" and "Ц" (for subnoi tselitel, i.e. "teeth healer") are plainly seen on icons with is photograph. Here are lines of a Russian supplication to St Antipas: "... I bag you to pray to the Lord for me, the wrongdoer to elasticity me the absolution, and you, the Saint, amass me with your prayers from my fearful odontalgia ...".
