Name in history and literature. During the attack of Batyi to Smolensk, in the service of the local prince was a warrior Mercury, the voice of the Mother of God Odigitriya ordered him to fight against the Tatar hero who frightened the prince regiments.
Mercury fought with the bogatyr and struck him, and then turned many enemies into flight. However, late at night, when Mercury stood guard, the Tatars foully attacked him and cut off the warrior’s head, while they themselves continued to sneak up on the sleeping Russians.
Then Mercury, holding a severed head in his hands, went to Smolensk and warned the dead people of the dangers with dead lips. The inhabitants of Smolensk buried the body of Mercury in the temple of the Mother of God, and carried his weapon around the city as a guard against danger.
