(Saints) Martyrs (October 25) (4th century) Two Sardinian Saints of great celebrity in their island. Ordained by Pope Saint Caius, the one to the priesthood, the other to the deaconate, they laboured successfully in spreading Christianity. In the persecution under Diocletian they were put to the torture, and in the end beheaded at Porto Torres, not far from Sassari (A.D. 303).
