Commemorated on January 31

The Holy Martyrs Victorinus, Victor, Nicephorus, Claudius, Diodorus, Serapion, and Papias suffered at Corinth in 251, during a persecution under the emperor Decius (249-251). Saints Victorinus, Victor and Nicephorus were tied to a stone mortar and crushed by a huge stone pestle.

Troparion — Tone 4

Your holy martyr Victorinus, O Lord, / through his suffering has received an incorruptible crown from You, our God. / For having Your strength, he laid low his adversaries, / and shattered the powerless boldness of demons. / Through his intercessions, save our souls!
