The Holy Martyrs Romanus, James, Philotheus, Hyperechius,Abibus, Julian and Paregorius.

Commemorated January 29 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

They all suffered for Christ in Samosta in the time of the Emperor Maximilian, in the year 297. Philotheus and Hyperechius were aristocrats and the others were young men of respected families. The pagans killed them in a terrible way, hammering nails into the head of each of them. They suffered with honour and entered into eternal joy.
