Saint Fausta, also known as Saint Fausta of Cyzicus (298 - 311), was a 4th-century girl who was arrested, tortured and executed for being a Christian. Evilasius was responsible for torturing and executing her, who was 13 years old at that time. Evilasius was converted to Christianity after watching her courageous death and was himself martyred for this act.
