Aberoh and Atom are martyrs of the Christian church.

These brothers were citizens of Gamnudi in Egypt. They fled Gamnudi during a persecution for Pelusium (then Farama). They were arrested at Alexandria and tortured. After being dismissed by the prefect, they went next to Baramon, where they were beheaded. Their relics were returned to Gamnudi. Their feast day is July 2 in the Coptic Church.
