Not even in the bundle of heads? That's cold.

Is Josiah formally a saint in the Orthodox or Catholic churches?

I assumed he was - included in the Righteous Forefathers.  I'd like confirmation.

He is.
Somewhere on Athos, Antonis groans, and the skulls of the holy brethren with him!

Pretty rough. The iconographer needed more training before publicizing that one.
