Book of Saints – Peter and Aphrodisius

main article for Saint Aphrodisius of AfricaArticle

(Saints) Martyrs (March 14) (Date unknown) African Martyrs who suffered under the Arian Vandals in the second half of the fifth or early in the sixth century. All records dealing with them have been lost. Hence there are disputes among the learned as to whether one or the other of them was not an Asiatic who perished in an earlier persecution. Some manuscripts have “Euphrasius” in place of “Aphrodisius.”
