Here is one of Saint Panteleimon, with his life along, along with his tortures, along the edge (13th cen) Icon of St Panteleimon https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Pantaleon#/media/File:St_Panteleimon.jpg

This is a blog page on the 40 martyrs of Sebaste, including several examples of their martyrdom, along with crowns at the top:

St. Polycarp: link.

Saint Barbara: link.

Saint Thekla: link.

One would hope that by now we all have a copy of an icon of the Coptic New Martyrs in our home shrines/icon corners!

I have one, in a frame. It's hanging on my icon corner, in the bedroom.

There's an icon of the Coptic, and Ethiopian martyrs, at one of the icon spaces, in my OCA parish.

You've outdone yourself Greigo Amigo!

A beautiful icon in the traditional Ethiopic style!

It is my understanding that they were two groups of Ethiopian Christians who were killed in Libya. One group wore the orange jumpsuits while the other group wore black.

I am not aware of any published list of names nor if they have been canonized by the Ethiopian Orthodox Church.
