Is there a feast day for St. Leonides of Alexandria, the father of Origen. I know the Roman Catholic Church celebrate him on April 22. What about the Orthodox Church? What about the Oriental Orthodox? (I can't find his name in the Coptic Synexarium)

There is an EO martyr Leonides of Egypt, martyred under emperor Maximian, feast day June 5. No idea if it's the same one.

No...100 years too late.

The father of Origen was killed by the emperor Severus around 202
