(Saints) Martyrs (December 23) (4th century) They were high officials in the Imperial Court, either in that of Maximian Herculeus or in that of Diocletian. In the persecution (A.D. 300 about), as Christians who refused to return to heathenism, they were sentenced to the death penalty. Migdonius was burned at the stake and Mardonius drowned in a well. A Christian, by name Anthimus, was discovered conveying a letter to them while awaiting trial in their prison at Nicomedia. For this he was stoned to death.
