Saints of the Day – Theopemptus and Theonas

Saints Theonas and TheopemptusArticle

Died 284. Theopemptus, bishop of Nicomedia, was martyred there after a series of miraculous escapes. Theonas, a magician converted by the example of Theopemptus, was thereafter himself martyred. Their Acta are wholly untrustworthy, though the martyrs themselves seem to have been historical personages (Benedictines).
