Juventinus and Maximinus
- For the poet with this name, see Juventinus Albius Ovidius.
Before starting his campaign against the Sassanid Empire, Julian issued an edict that prohibited the veneration of the relics in Antioch. Juventius and his colleague Maximinus (also reported as Maximos or Maximus) protested against this edict, even when brought in front of their Emperor. Julian had them stripped of their properties and beheaded, according to Roman Martyrology. Saint John Chrysostom wrote their eulogy.
Both saints have 25 January as feast day.
