    When the day arrived, Saint George went to the place of execution followed by a large crowd. He died all alone, after living in the horror of all his fears, which gave him no peace. As a soldier he gave so many proofs of his valour and military skill that Diocletian, not knowing that he was a Christian, advanced him in a high place of dignity in the Imperial Court, then held at Nicomedia. Returning to Cappadocia after a victorious campaign and passing through the region of Attalia in Pamphylia, he freed the king's daughter, who had been left at the mercy of a dangerous dragon, and killed the beast with a divine strength that he was given by his faith. Along the way she felt faint and slumped against a wall.

    That time did come, and the ruler dressed her in her finest attire, then sent her off to the lake. Overcoming the pain with his overflowing love for God, Saint George unceasingly gave thanks to God. The name Metaphrastes was given him because of the wonderful industry and care with which he collected together and published the old lives of saints and martyrs; and, whilst retaining the sense and matter of the original writers, rendered their histories more readable by reproducing them in his own graceful and elegant style. On the last night the Holy Martyr prayed fervently, and when he dozed off, he beheld the Lord Himself, Who raised him up with His hand, and hugged him in giving him a kiss of greeting.
