The Holy Martyrs Alevtina, Paul, and Chione at Caesarea, in Palestine

Commemorated on July 16

 The Holy Martyrs Alevtina, Paul, and Chione were from Egypt. During the persecution against Christians under the emperor Maximian (305-313), they were taken to Palestinian Caesarea. Without the slightest fear they confessed themselves as followers of Christ. In the year 308 the sisters Alevtina and Chione were burned, and Paul was beheaded.
