  4. ^ "Domnina and her two daughters, virgins, Berenice or Verinna and Prosdoce, in the persecution of Diocletian fled from home, but were pursued; and being taken by soldiers, to escape from their brutality flung themselves into a river and were drowned."[14]
  5. ^ "Adauctus, a citizen of Ephesus, suffered martyrdom in Mesopotamia, in the persecution of Maximin. His daughter Callisthene cut her hair short, disguised herself as a young man, and concealed herself in Nicomedia. After eight years she went to Thrace, and lodged with a woman who had a daughter with delicate eyes. Callisthene, by careful attention, healed the girl, and the mother desired to marry the two, that they might settle in her house and be the comfort of her old age. Callisthene was then obliged to tell her story. She went next to Constantia, the wife of Licinius, and told her her case, and the empress procured for her the restoration of her father's property which had been confiscated. Callisthene recovered the body of her father, brought it to Ephesus, and built a church over it."[17]

The wife of his master fell desperately in love with him, and because he indignantly rejected her overtures she compassed his murder, which took place at L'Indrois, near Montresor."[30]
  9. ^ A citizen of Tours in France, he worked at the court of the Frankish king. The reigning queen tried to seduce him and had him assassinated at L'Indrois near Montresor.
