(Saints) Martyrs (February 4) (4th century) Martyrs whose Passion is related by the contemporary historian Eusebius. Saint Philseas was Bishop of Thumuis, an ancient city of Lower Egypt. He was beheaded, on account of his religion, under Diocletian about A.D. 306. With him suffered Saint Philoromus, an Imperial officer of distinction. Their execution had been preceded by the doing to death of numerous Christians, inhabitants of Thumuis and its neighbourhood. To their heroic constancy in the Faith, Saint Philseas himself bears Witness in a letter Eusebius has preserved to us.
