BALBINA (Saint) Virgin Martyr (March 31) (2nd century) A daughter of the Roman Tribune, Saint Quirinus the Martyr. She was baptised together with both her parents by Pope Saint Alexander. It appears that she ended her life by martyrdom, about A.D. 130, but whether she was drowned or buried alive is a matter of dispute.
