Felicula (died 90 AD) was an early virgin martyr. She was the foster sister of Saint Petronilla. She was arrested after Petronilla refused to marry a Roman official. After Petronilla's death, Felicula had no food and water in prison. She was thrown into a sewer, where she eventually died. Saint Nicomedes recovered her body.[1]
