Martyrs of the Baths



A group of Christians enslaved by Diocletian to build the gigantic baths in impoerial Rome, Italy. The end of their labours coincided with the beginning of the great persecutions of Diocletian, and they were all executed. Ancient records indicated there were 10,204 of them; Zeno of Rome is the only one whose name has come down to us, and we know nothing else about any of their individual lives.
