Mchoro wa ukutani katika monasteri ya Dionisi huko Afon (Ugiriki).

Porfiri wa Gaza (kwa Kigiriki Πορφύριος, Porphyrios; Thesalonike, Ugiriki[1]347 hivi – Gaza, Palestina, 26 Februari 420) alikuwa askofu wa mji huo kuanzia mwaka 395 hadi kifo chake.

Kutokana na masimulizi ya Maisha yake, yaliyoandikwa na Marko shemasi[2] alipata umaarufu kwa kuingiza katika Ukristo mji huo ulioshikilia Upagani na kwa kubomoa mahekalu yaliyokuweko[3].

Tangu kale anaheshimiwa na Wakatoliki, Waorthodoksi na Waorthodoksi wa Mashariki kama mtakatifu.

Sikukuu yake huadhimishwa katika tarehe ya kifo chake[1].
