Book of Saints – Glyceria


(Saint) Virgin Martyr (May 13) (2nd century) A Roman by birth, this Christian maiden, who was living with her father at Trajanopolis in Greece, suffered there for the Faith, being thrown to the wild beasts in the Amphitheatre, after enduring many cruel torments. The date of her martyrdom, under one of the Antonines, probably Marcus Aurelius, in the last half of the second century, cannot precisely be fixed. A magnificent church was dedicated to her at Heraclea of Thessaly.
