During the persecutions of Decius, Codratus and his mother fled to the forests of Greece. His mother died, and the boy grew up as a forest hermit. He later returned to the cities and studied medicine. During the persecution of Emperor Valerian, Codratus was finally arrested for his faith, tortured, and martyred with a group of fellow Christians.
