Saint Ammon.
Martyr.

Saint Ammon was one of the Theban Martyrs who were converted by Egyptian Christians during the persecution of Christians by Emperor Trajanus Decius. During the trials of these Christians, Ammon, together with four others, namely: Ingenes, Ptolomy, Theophilus and Zeno, all Roman soldiers assigned to guard condemned Christians, were converted. They cheered the faithfulness of the martyrs under torture, and urged them to endure in their courage. Consequently, Ammon and the others were themselves arrested and eventually beheaded.
The year was 249 and the place, Alexandria in Egypt.

Saint Zeno of Nicomedia
Zeno was a Roman soldier in Nicomedia. On the day that saw him martyred, Emperor Diocletian was offering sacrifice to the Roman god Ceres. Zeno could not help but laugh at the absurdity of it all. He was seized, his jaw shattered, and he was beheaded just for that laugh.
The year was 303, the place, Nicomedia.
Saint Zeno of Nicomedia,
