St. Apostolos brought the matter, of high tax, personally to the government official in charge. During this encounter, he argued with great boldness for the rights of his countrymen. Because of this boldness, he was imprisoned and tortured to deny his faith. However St. Apostolos remained steadfast in his faith, and confessed bravely: "I am a Christian, and I will never abandon my holy faith". He received the crown of martyrdom by beheading on August 16th, 1686, in Constantinople at the age of 19. His feast day to remember him is on August 16th each year.
