Book of Saints – Carpus, Papylus, Agathonica and Agathodorus


CARPUS, PAPYLUS, AGATHONICA and AGATHODORUS (Saints) Martyrs (April 13) (3rd century) A group of Martyrs of Pergamus in Asia Minor. Probably they suffered in the persecution under Decius (A.D. 250), though some ante-date them by a century to the time of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius. Carpus was the Bishop of Thyatira, Papylus, his deacon, Agathonica, the latter’s sister, and Agathodorus, their servant.
