Stamatios the Epiphanes of Imvrassia is junior co-emperor of Imvrassia.
In the Greek alphabet, the time is written as Σταμάτιος Α' which is properly transliterated as Stamatios I. The letter 'A' after the name identifies the numbering of the Monarch. When God first created the Angels he left them to their own authority. One of them, the so-called Lucifer, first among the Angels, appointed by God to an angelic order, became proud and meditated on placing his throne above God. As soon as he was satisfied, he fell down into the abyss of the earth and from an Angel he was became a Devil, and with him he dragged all his order, some of them reached Hades, others stayed on the earth, others in the water, others in the air, those who are called aerial tolls of souls. Then the Heaven split open and the Demons fell, all the Orders of the Heaven were signified and the commander-in-chief Michael then stood in the midst of them and said: "We stand in the fear of God" and immediately as each one was found he stayed, stood, stopped where he was." Christians celebrate this day, because the gathering of the Angels took place and together they celebrate those bearing angelic names: Michael, Gabriel, Seraphim, Angel, Stamatis, Stamatia-Stamatina (from "Stand after fear...").
