Died in 309, He and four companions, Elias, Isaias, Jeremy and Samuel were Egyptians who visited Christians condemned to work in the mines of Cilicia during Maximus persecution, to comfort them. Apprehended at the gates of Caesarea, Palestine, they were brought before the governor, Firmilian and accused of being Christians.
They were all tortured and then beheaded.
When Porphyry, a servant of St. Pamphilus demanded that the bodies be buried, he was tortured and
then burned to death when it was found he was a Christian. Seleucus witnessed his death and
applauded his constancy in the face of his terrible death; whereupon he was arrested by the soldiers
involved in the execution, borught before the governor and was beheaded at Firmilian's order.
