The Holy Martyr Leontius suffered for the Christian Faith in the third century with Saints Stratonicus, Chronides, Serapion, Leontius and Seleucus. Saints Chronides, Leontius and Serapion were from Egypt. After fierce torments for their confession of faith in Christ, the holy martyrs were savagely killed. Saints Chronides, Leontius and Serapion were bound hand and foot and cast into the sea. Their bodies were carried to shore by the waves, where Christians gave them burial.
