Martyr Porphyrius of Ephesus

The Holy Martyrs Porphyrius and Onesiphorus of Ephesus suffered during the persecution against Christians under the emperor Diocletian (284-305). They beat them and burned them. After this, they tied the saints to wild horses, which dragged them over the stones, after which the Martyrs Onesiphorus and Porphyrius died. Believers gathered the relics of the saints and reverently buried them.
