Feastday: August 10 (d. 260) Martyrs, including priests, deacons, and lay persons, who sacrificed their lives caring for victims of a deadly plague. Feastday: February 28 (d. 342) Christians slain by Arians and pagans on Good Friday. St. Athanasius described this martyrdom in his writings. Feastday: March 21 (d. 356) Christians martyred by an Arian official While celebrating Mass.

Feastday: January 28 (d. 372) Martyrs who were slain or exiled when authorities attacked St. Athanasius. The martyrs of the church of Theonas, a suburb of Alexandria, were singled out for praise by Church historians. Feastday: May 13 (d. 390) Christians attacked by pagan worshippers of the god Serapis.
