Christian slave of a Phrygian prince. Flogged for refusing to join in pagan celebrations on her owner’s birthday. When she fled from his household, a large rock opened up for her to escape into; she was never seen again. She was assumed to have died in the rock, it became her tomb, and she is considered a martyr.
