I've always wondered who were the "three saint Abba Macarii" mentioned in the Commemoration of the Saints.
In our Church we have an icon of a saint called "Abba Makari", the icon is exactly like this one but with a coptic style:
This saint is Abba Macarius the great.
So my guess is that "Macarii" could be a shortening for "Macarius" and therefore the 3 saint abba Macarri refers to 3 Abba Macarius, including maybe saint Abba Macarius the great.
Is my guess correct?
Would you have more info about the 3 Abba Macarii?
