Martyrs Adrian and Eubulus, at Caesarea in Cappadocia (310)

Commemorated on February 3

Born in Magnesia they suffered for Christ in Caesarea, Palestine, about 308- 309. Coming there to visit other confessors, they were taken at the city gate and were placed before the city mayor. After various tortures St. Adrian was thrown into the midst of lions and, when the beasts did not touch him, he was beheaded by the sword. St. Eubulus was torn apart by the beasts.
