Book of Saints – Macarius


(Saint) Martyr (September 5) (Date unknown) A soldier who was put to death at Melitene in Armenia on the River Euphrates, with his comrades Eudoxius and Zeno, and seven hundred and four other soldiers, on account of their religion. Some say that these Christians were among the victims of the persecution under Diocletian (A.D. 302, about); others join them with Saint Romulus, a Martyr of Trajan’s time, nearly two centuries earlier. A detailed account of the sufferings of these Martyrs exists, but it is of late date and early accounts are lacking.
