Martyred soldier and companions, slain at Lentini, in Sicily. Mercurius and the oth ers were soldiers assigned to escort Christians to their deaths during the persecutions launched by Emperor Diocletian. Converted to Christianity by the heroic example of their prisoners, Mercurius and his troops surrendered themselves up to suffer the same beheading inflicted upon their newfound Christian friends.
