(Saint) Martyr (January 20) (3rd century) One of the most renowned of the Roman Martyrs. He was an officer in the Imperial army, and a favourite of the Emperor Diocletian. Nevertheless, when he became a Christian, no mercy was shown him. Tied to a tree, his body was made a target for the Roman archers, after which, it being discovered that he was still breathing, he was clubbed to death (A.D. 288).
