Sabinus of Hermopolis
- for other saints called Sabinus, see Sabinus (disambiguation)
During the persecution of Diocletian he and several other Christians concealed themselves in a hut. Their presence there was ultimately revealed to the government by someone whose identity remains dubious. That person is described as either a beggar or a physician. Sabinus was then taken to Antinopolis, where, after being subjected to a variety of tortures, he was drowned in the Nile.
He is recognized as a saint by several Christian churches. His feast day in the Roman Catholic Church is March 13. The Greek Orthodox Church gives him the full office of March 16. He is also commemorated in the Coptic Church on February 20.
