Saint’s Biography

Saint Parthenius of Rome was the brother of St. Calocerus. He was a eunuch in the palace of Tryphonia, responsible for Anatolia, daughter of the Roman consul Aemilian. Accused by Decius of embezzling the money of Anatolia and committing the capital crime of Christianity. Parthenius defended Christians, and the court took his defense as a confession of his Christianity and condemned him to death. He was thrown into a bonfire; he was not harmed, and the guards beat him to death with flaming brands from the fire. Parthenius was buried in the catacombs of St. Callixtus.
