Book of Saints – Florus, Laurus, Proculus and Maximus

Saint Laurus of IllyriaArticle

(Saints) Martyrs (August 18) (Date uncertain) Proculus or Prochus and Maximus, two Christian sculptors in Illyria or in some other Eastern European Province, employed the twin brothers Florus and Laurus, likewise Christians, as stone-cutters. All four were put to death (drowned in a well) for the Faith; but the date of their Passion is disputed, most authors assigning it to the second century, but others to as late as the fourth.
