The Holy Martyrs Christopher, Theonas and Antonius.

Commemorated April 19 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

These three were young officers under the Emperor Diocletian. When St George the Great Martyr was being tortured, they witnessed his sufferings and the miracles that were performed at that time. Having seen all this, they came to the Emperor, threw down their arms, removed their soldiers' belts and courageously confessed the name of the Lord Jesus. They were subjected to many tortures and finally thrown into the fire, where their bodies were burned while their souls ascended to the one Lord in eternal joy, They suffered in Nicomedia in 303.
