This was by the push of the ruler Valens and he was exiled accompanied by the forefathers Aisdhurs, Herachleds, Pemwa, Bismenus , Pfnotios and Aminus who had one ear. St Bladios told us that Aodolegus origin was Tartus and he came to Jerusalem to exercise difficult and strange life. He ate once every two days, and during the great lent every five days. At the sunset he headed to the Mount of Olives, where our LORD and MASTER JESUS CHRIST Ascended to heaven. He stayed in the middle of the severe cold and heavy rains worshiping in the open every day. When it was time for the midnight prayer he awakened the other monks and gathered them for praying together. They praise the LORD in the two groups by praying the Psalms {(The same as the current tradition(Taks)}. The monks had petty on him. They squeezed his wet clothes and dried them for him. He slept for a little while until dawn when he got up to pray and then to work for the full day until sunset.
