  11. ^ The holy patriarch-martyr was hanged over the door to the Phanarion and later his body was thrown into the Bosphoros. Ukrainian sailors retrieved his body, thinking him to have been a priest martyred by the Turks. At Odessa, he was positively identified as the patriarch and enshrined there until his glorification as a sainted hieromartyr and return to Athens where he is now enshrined. The Ukrainian Orthodox Church has placed his name in its own calendar, especially owing to his great veneration by Ukrainians.[21] The translation of his relics took place on 25/4/1871.
