The Holy Martyrs Julian, Eunos (Kronion) his servant, Beza (Bisos) the soldier and Mekaros
Commemorated on February 27
The Holy Martyrs Julian, Eunos (Kronion) his servant, Beza (Bisos) the soldier and Mekaros suffered at the beginning of the reign of Decius (249-251) at Alexandria. Saint Julian, a very old man, suffered from gout and could neither stand nor get about. He was carried to the trial by his servants, one of whom, one of whom by the name of Eunos bravely confessed faith in Christ, even though a second servant recanted. They took Julian and Eunos through the city on camels, subjecting them to the jeering of pagans, and finally burnt them in a bon-fire. The soldier Saint Beza also suffered together with them. For trying to defend the holy martyrs from insult, he was beheaded by the sword. And then also Mekaros of Lebanon was burnt.
