(Saint) Martyr (July 25) (4th century) A Martyr in Palestine under the Emperor Galerius (one of Diocletian‘s colleagues). Before laying his head on the block (A.D. 308) he obtained a few minutes respite for prayer, and interceded, first for his fellow-courtrymen, then for the spread of the Christian religion among both Jews and Gentiles, next for the crowds gathered to see him die, and lastly for his judges and executioners. This is the account given by the historian Eusebius, contemporary of the Holy Martyr.
