(Saint) (August 16) (3rd century) Described as the wife of the Emperor Diocletian, and as secretly a Christian. She certainly sought as far as was in her power to mitigate the lot of the Christians. After her death they venerated her as a Saint. The little we know of her comes from the Acts of Saint Susanna, Virgin Martyr, and from those of Pope Saint Caius (A.D. 283-296).
