Book of Saints – Philetas, Lydia, Macedo, Theoprepides, Amphilochius and Cronidas

Saint Lydia of IllyriaArticle

(March 27) (Saints) Martyrs (2nd century) These Martyrs appear to have been Greeks. Philetas is described as of senatorial rank. Lydia was his wife, and Macedo and Theoprepides their children. The other two were personages occupying conspicuous official positions. They all suffered together as Christians in the time of the Emperor Hadrian (about A.D. 121), and, it is related, were thrown into caldrons of boiling oil.
