Book of Saints – Ammon, Theophilus, Neoterrus and Others

Article

AMMON, THEOPHILUS, NEOTERRUS and OTHERS (Saints) Martyrs (September 8) (Date uncertain) Egyptian Christians, put to death at Alexandria; but it is not clear whether they were previously tried and condemned in virtue of the Imperial edicts against Christians, or suffered at the hands of the pagan mob. The names of the twenty-two Christians who shared the martyrdom of the three above named are given by the Bollandists, but we have neither date nor particulars. Possibly they are the Martyrs mentioned by Eusebius, quoting Saint Dionysius of Alexandria.
