(Septem Latrones), martyrs on the Island of Corcyra (Corfu) in the second century. Their names are Saturninus, Insischolus, Faustianus, Januarius, Marsalius, Euphrasius, and Mammius. The Greek menologies inform us that Sts. Jason and Sosipater, who had been instructed in the Christian religion by the Apostles or by Christ Himself, came to the Island of Corcyra to preach the Gospel of Christ. After making numerous conversions they were cast into a dungeon where the above-named seven robbers were imprisoned. They succeeded in converting the robbers who were then taken outside the city and martyred by being cast into caldrons that were filled with seething oil and pitch. Some Greek menologies mention them on 27, others on 29, April. In the Roman martyrology they are commemorated on 20 April.
