Commemorated on December 12
The Holy Martyr Cynecius (Razumnik) (Cynecius is derived from the Greek word "synetos", – meaning "man of reason") was by birth a Roman, and was a reader in the Roman Church under Pope Sixtus (257-258). He was subjected to tortures and then beheading for his brave confession of faith during the time of the emperor Aurelian (270‑275).
