(Saints) Martyrs (October 10) (3rd century) These heroic Christians, three hundred and nineteen in number, appear to have formed part of the famous Theban Legion, massacred by order of the Emperor Maximian (A.D. 286). Saint Gereon would therefore be the officer in command of the detachment. Saint Hanno of Cologne discovered and enshrined their remains in the eleventh century.
