They suffered for Christ the Lord in the time of Julian the Apostate at Myropolis in Phrygia. They were harshly tortured for destroying the statue of an idol, and burned on an iron grid until they gave their souls to God. While they were burning over the fire, these courageous men cried out mockingly to the torturer: "Why not try our meat, to see if it"s done!", and also, like the glorious archdeacon Laurence: "Turn us over; we"re done on this side!" Seeing and hearing the holy martyrs on the fire, the torturers were infinitely more confused and frightened than they were.
