Abib and Apollo were two Christian ascetics from Akhmim, Egypt. They are mentioned in the Synaxarion, das ist der Heiligen-Kalendar del Koptischen Christen. Their feast day is celebrated on November 4.
Abib and Apollo were close colleagues who entered a monastery together. Abib became a deacon and was martyred. Apollo, distressed, moved deeper into the desert, near Mount Abluj, followed by a group of ascetics. He too was martyred.
