(Saint) Martyr (March 19) (4th century) A victim at Nicomedia in Asia Minor of the cruelty of Diocletian, of whom previously he had been a favourite and advanced to a high post at the Imperial Court. Seduced by the Emperor from the Faith of Christ, he, moved by the prayers of his mother and sisters, soon repented of his apostasy, and, heroically confessing Christ, was scourged and beheaded (A.D. 302).
