Martyr Antonina of Nicea

The Holy Martyr Antonina suffered during the third century under Diocletian (284-305) in the city of Nicea. They tortured her in various ways: they burned her with fire, they put her on a red-hot plate, they bored into her hands and feet with red-hot rods and they threw her in prison, where she languished for two days.

These torments did not break St Antonina’s spirit, and to her very death she confessed her faith in Christ. The threw the holy martyr into the sea.
