Martyr Porphyrius in Thessaly

Saint Porphyrius was a soldier who suffered martyrdom with Saints Charalampus, Bishop of Magnesia, Baptus, Porphyrius, and three women in the year 202.

Seeing the endurance of Saint Charalampus and his complete lack of malice, two soldiers (Porphyrius and Baptus) openly confessed Christ, for which they were immediately beheaded with a sword.
