(Saints) Martyrs (August 26) (3rd century) Two Roman Martyrs who suffered under Valerian (A.D. 258) in the same persecution as the famous Saint Laurence. Their crime was the having sought out and decently interred the bodies of other Martyrs. Irenaeus and Abundius were done to death by being drowned or suffocated in the public sewers.
