Saints Vincent, Orontius, and Victor (d. 305 AD) are venerated as martyrs by the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Churches. Tradition states that Vincent and Orontius were brothers from Cimiez. They were Christians who evangelized in the Pyrenees and were killed at Puigcerda with Saint Victor.[1][2]

Vincent should not be confused with the more famous Vincent of Saragossa, who is honored on the same feast day.

Veneration[edit]

Their relics were enshrined at Embrun,[1] in a sanctuary built by Palladius of Embrun.[3]
