H event [E] σύναξιϛ [S] τοῦ ἁγίου μάρτυροϛ Ἀκακίου ἐν τῷ μαρτυρίῳ αὐτοῦ [ἐν] [H omits ἐν; Mateos 1962: 346] τῷ Ἑπτασκάλῳ,
ZT event [E] [S] акакїа· [Holweck (also Martinov, 1963:183) gives the saint's name for this date as "Achatius in the Heptascalon". Holweck describes the Heptascalon correctly as a Constantinople locality, but in fact, "at the Heptascalon" is a fragment from H describing the location of the church of St. Achatius in Constantinople. Janin believes the 'synaxis' referred to in H for this date was actually a dedication of the church, which was built by Emperor Constantine himself (1969: 14-15). Holweck probably is correct in suggesting that this Achatius is the Hekatontarch.]
