Halmyris is located 2.5 kilometers from the current village of Murighiol, in the extreme corner of the province of Scythia, an area called in ancient times extrema Scythiae Minoris. In the Greco-Roman period, the Halmyris fortification was located near the inlet of the Peuce branch, today Sfântu Gheorghe.

The priest Epictetus and his scholar become extremely popular, thanks to the miracles they performed in the city, many sick people being healed. The document "Acta Sanctorum"" tells that the two began to preach (very successfully) the Christian religion to the inhabitants, managing to convert many people.
