Of these Martyrs, Saint Claudius died when his arms and legs were severed; Saint
Diodore was burned alive; Saints Victor, Victorinus, and Nicephorus
were crushed to death by a large boulder; Saint Serapion was burned
alive; Saint Pappias was cast into the sea. According to some accounts,
they contested in Corinth under Decius in 251; according to others,
in Diospolis in Egypt under Numerian in 284.
Apolytikion in the Fourth Tone:
Thy Martyrs, O Lord, in their courageous contest for Thee received as the prize
the crowns of incorruption and life from Thee, our immortal God. For since
they possessed Thy strength, they cast down the tyrants and wholly destroyed
the demons' strengthless presumption. O Christ God, by their prayers, save
our souls, since Thou art merciful.
