Martyr of Caesarea, in Cappadocia in modern Turkey, although he is listed as dying in Antioch, Turkey. He was arrested and imprisoned for being a Christian, and commanded to sacrifice to the pagan deities. He lost his hand to hot coals of incense before being slain because he would not save himself pain by a Howling the coals to be sprinkled on an idol. St. Basil preached in his honor.
