Martyr Baptus in Thessaly

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

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