Christian woman who, during the persecutions of Diocletian, refused to sacrifice to idols and claimed that she remained celibate as she was wed to God. She was ordered by anti-Christian governor Eustratius to be turned over to a house of prostitution. There Saint Didymus changed clothes with her so she could escape. She was later re-captured and executed. Martyr.
