(Saint) Virgin Martyr (December 9) (4th century) A Virgin-Martyr celebrated in Spain, one of the many who suffered, A.P. 304, at Toledo under the Prefect Dacian in the persecution set on foot by Diocletian. By some she is said to have died in prison; by others to have been thrown over a precipice. Three churches in Toledo bear her name, and in one of these the famous sixth and seventh century councils of Toledo were held. She is venerated in Flanders under the name of Saint Locaie.
