CYRIACUS, LARGUS, SMARAGDUS and OTHERS (Saints) Martyrs (August 8) (4th century) A group of more than twenty Christians, among the victims in Rome of the great persecution under the Emperors Diocletian and Maximian Herculeus (A.D. 303). They were beheaded after having been put to the torture. Saint Cyriacus, who was a deacon, gave his name to a famous church, seat or title of a Cardinal deacon. On its falling in the fifteenth century into ruin, its privileges, with the relics enshrined in it, were transferred to the church called Santa Maria in Via Lata.
