Apocreos

Apocreos is a name for the Sunday in the Orthodox Greek calendar, which corresponds to Sexagesima Sunday, so called because from it the abstinence from flesh begins, though the more strict observance of the Lenten fast does not commence until the following Sunday. The whole of the preceding week is also named from this Sunday, and is a kind of carnival.
