(Saint) (December 1) (4th century) A devout Christian woman of Nicomedia, the residence of the Emperor Diocletian, who bravely ministered to the Martyrs imprisoned during the persecutions, the worst of which she survived, dying peacefully at Constantinople about A.D. 311. She had been a servant in the household of the Martyr Saint Hadrian (September 8), and the loyal service she rendered him in prison and in the torture chamber is touchingly narrated in his Acts.
