Book of Saints – Tigrius and Eutropius

main article for Saint TigriusArticle

(Saints) Martyrs (January 12) (5th century) Tigrius was a priest at Constantinople, but said to have been of Barbarian descent. Eutropius was a Lector or Reader in a church of the same city. Both were staunch adherents of Saint John Chrysostom; and, when the latter was banished by the Emperor Arcadius, were falsely accused of incendiarism, put to the torture, and deported into Asia. They seem to have died in prison about A.D. 405.
