The Holy Martyrs Kyriena from Tarsus and Juliania from Rosa were arrested for confessing the Christian faith under the governor of Cilicia, Marcian, during the reign of the emperor Maximian Galerius (305-311). They led Saint Kyriena, stripped and with shorn head, around Tarsus for ridicule, and then together with Saint Juliania they went to the city of Rosa, where they gave them over to burning.
