Husband of Saint Symphorosa of Tivoli. Roman officer in the armies of Emperors Trajan and Hadrian. Public convert to Christianity with his brother Saint Amantius. Getulius resigned his commission, and retired to the country of the Sabines. Emperor Hadrian sent the guards Caerealis and Primitivus to arrest the ex-officer; instead, the brothers converted the guards. Hadrian ordered the judge Licinius to condemn the whole group to death. They were offered a reprieve if they would renounce Christianity; they declined. Martyr.
