Saint Hesychius of Durres, Italian Christian who fled Italy to get away from the mistreatments of ruler Hadrian. Touched base in Dyrrachium, Macedonia to discover St. Astius attached to a cross, covered in nectar, laid in the sun, and left to be tormented by gnawing and stinging creepy crawlies. When he communicated compassion toward Astius, he was blamed for being a Christian, captured, binded, weighted down, taken seaward, and drowned. A martyr died for their faith.
