Stratonice, Martyr at Cyzicum

Resource Toolbox

Stratonice, martyr at Cyzicum in Mysia with Seleucus her husband at the quinquennalia of Galerius during Diocletian's persecution. The wife of a leading magistrate of the town, she came to see a large number of Christians tortured. Their patience converted her and she converted her husband. Her father, Apollonius, after every effort to win her back to paganism had failed, became her most bitter accuser. Husband and wife were beheaded, and buried in one tomb over which Constantine built a church (Assemani, Acta Mart. Orient. t. ii. p. 65 ). The Acts offer many marks of authenticity. Cf. Le Blant, Actes des Martyrs ; p. 224, etc.; AA. SS. Boll. Oct. xiii. pp 893–916; Ceill. ii. 481–483.
