I suppose I should have asked if she had an active cultus.  To my uncertain knowlege, the OO alone venerate the pre schism St. Evagrius and also only the Copts have an active cultus around two martyrs I highly revere, Ss. Abanoub and Mina.
St. Menas is actively revered by at least some Greeks (relics and dedicated churches). Also, is this St. Evagrius the Pontic monk?

Edit: It seems he has a historical active Latin parish dedicated to him in Germany, too.
