Martyr Neon, in Cappadocia

Saint Neon was put to death with the holy martyrs Eleusippus, Meleusippus, Speusippus, and their grandmother Leonilla, and also with Turbo and Jonilla. They suffered in Gaul (by another account, in Cappadocia) in the second century, during the persecution under Marcus Aurelius (161-180).

Saint Neon witnessed the exploits of the holy brothers, and wrote an account of their sufferings. He gave his manuscript to Turbo, and openly confessed himself a Christian, for which he was fiercely beaten and died from his beating.
