Phanourios the Great Martyr & Newly Appeared of Rhodes is recognized as a saint by the Greek Orthodox church.[1] [2] He is commemorated on August 27.[3]

Saint Phanourios was awarded the Martyr's Crown in the Orthodox Christian faith.

He is also well known for finding people's lost belongings after fervent supplications.

Angelos Akotantos from Crete has written a number of the Saint's icons many times depicting him killing a dragon; this tradition is found mainly in Crete especially in icons of the 15th century when the Saint is said to have saved many Cretans from certain death from the hands of the invading Ottomans.[4]
