Martyrs Chronides, Leontius and Serapion of Alexandria with Martyrs Seleucus and Stratonicus in Scythia

Commemorated on September 13

The Holy Martyr Chronides suffered for the Christian Faith in the third century with Sts Stratonicus, Serapion, Leontius and Seleucus. StsChronides, Leontius, and Serapion were from Egypt. After fierce torments for their confession of faith in Christ, the holy martyrs were savagely killed. Sts Chronides, Leontius and Serapion were bound hand and foot and cast into the sea. Their bodies were carried to shore by the waves, where Christians gave them burial.
