Theodora was a Roman martyr. The little we know about her life is attributed to the Acta of Pope St. Alexander. She was the sister of St. Hermes, who she had given aid and care to during his difficult time in prison.[2] She was martyred some time after her brother, in 120. The siblings were later buried side by side[3] on the Salarian road outside of Rome.[4]
