Book of Saints – Hermylas and Stratonicus


(January 13) (Saints) Martyrs (4th century) Hermylas, a deacon of Singudunum (now Belgrade), and Stratonicus, his servant, on account of their profession of the Christian Religion, were denounced to the authorities under the Emperor Licinius, put to the torture, and in the end drowned in the River Danube (A.D. 315). Three days later, certain Ciiristians charged with the care of the remains of Martyrs recovered their bodies and honourably interred them at a place situated at some little distance from the city.
