During the persecution of Diocletian and Maximian, about the year 290, Saints
Onesiphorus and Porphyries were betrayed as Christians to the persecutors.
After many torments through which they stood fast in confessing their
faith, they were bound by the feet to wild horses and dragged to death.
Kontakion in the Second Tone:
The martyric pair contested with great steadfastness and dashed to
the earth the boasting of the enemy and were made to shine with the
grace of the uncreated Trinity, and now with the angelic Hosts the
glorious Martyrs pray to God for us.
