(Saint) Virgin Martyr (August 11) (3rd century) A Roman maiden of noble birth, said to have been a niece of Pope Saint Caius. The prolix account given of her in the mediaeval legend is very unreliable. What appears certain is that on her refusal (about A.D. 190) to marry a Pagan relative of the Emperor Diocletian, she was arrested and put to death as a Christian. A well-known church in Rome bears her name.
