Catechumen Secundulus

Saint Secundulus was a catechumen in Carthage, who was arrested with Sts Perpetua and Felicitas. He was killed by the sword in 203.

The amphitheatre where these saints perished is located a few miles from the city of Tunis. In 1881, a room was discovered opposite the modern entrance into the arena. Some say this was a cell where the victims waited to be brought into the arena.
