Four Crowned Martyrs
Two separate groups who suffered for the faith, called Sancti Quatuor Coronati, "the Four Holy Crowned Ones." Castorius, Claudius, Nicostratus, and Symphorian were tortured and slain in Pannonia, having been carvers from Sirmium. They refused to carve a pagan statue and were martyred by retired co-Emperor Diocletian. A martyr named Simplicius died with them. The second group of Four Holy Crowned Ones died at Albano, Italy. They were Carpophorus, Secundius, Severian, and Victorinus. A basilica was erected in honor of these martyrs in Rome. Their cult was confined to local calendars in 1969.
