Book of Saints – Theodotus, Rufina and Ammia


(August 31) (Saints) Martyrs (3rd century) According to Greek tradition, Saints Theodotus and Rufina were the parents, and Saint Ammia the foster-mother of Saint Mammas the Martyr (August 17). They are said to have, like him, suffered death for Christ in Cappadocia under the Emperor Aurelian about A.D. 270. But the evidence in support of the details of the tradition is very slight.
