The Martyrdom of Polycarp, the written account of the death of St. Polycarp of Smyrna. The Martyrium was composed in the form of a letter, written at the request of the Church at Philomelium, to provide an account of Polycarp's heroic martyrdom. Dated to the mid-second century, it is a poignant recounting and is considered the oldest reliable account of a martyrdom.
