Book of Saints – Ammon, Zeno, Ptolomaeus, Ingen and Theophilus


AMMON. ZENO, PTOLOMAEUS, INGEN and THEOPHILUS (Saints) Martyrs (December 20) (Date uncertain.) Saint Dionysius of Alexandria relates how a group of soldiers, named as above, were present when a Christian on his trial at Alexandria appeared to be on the point of denying his Faith. They publicly showed contempt of his cowardice, and on being arrested professed themselves Christians. They were put to death on that account. The date is unknown, and they may possibly be identical with the group of Martyrs in Egypt commemorated on September 8, or rather have been included in their number.
