Saints Rufus and Carpophorus (Carpone, Carponius) (died c. 295) were Christians who were martyred at Capua during the reign of Diocletian. Their Acta state that Rufus was a deacon.

One Saint Rufus for the feast day August 27 also appears as Rufinus in the "Martyrologium Hieronymianum" (ed. cit., 111). The other Saint Rufus is said to have suffered with a companion, Carponius, in Diocletian's persecution circa 304 AD (cf. "Bibliotheca hagiographica latina", II, 1070; Acta SS., VI August, 18-19).

Their feast day is August 27.
