The box for relics, was found embedded in an altar at the ruins of a fifth-century monastery on Sveti Ivan (which means St. John) – small Black Sea island close to Sozopol.
Few days ago, the relics (part of an arm bone, a skull bone, and a tooth) were transferred to St. George Church in Sozopol downtown where they were laid in state.
