(Saint) Martyr (December 24) (4th century) A priest of Spoleto in Umbria, tortured and beheaded at the beginning of the fourth century, under Maximian Herculeus. The tradition is that, the Prefect having ordered his remains to be thrown to the wild beasts kept for the public games, a Christian woman bought them back at a great price and honourably interred them.
