At Rome, two hundred and sixty holy martyrs condemned for the name of Christ. Claudius ordered them to dig sand beyond the Salarian Gate, then to have soldiers in the amphitheatre shoot them with arrows. Item natális sanctórum Mártyrum Leónis, Donáti, Abundántii, Nicéphori et aliórum novem.

At Marseilles in France, the holy martyrs Hermes and Adrian. Heliópoli, apud Líbanum, sanctæ Eudóciæ Mártyris, quæ, in persecutióne Trajáni, a Theódoto Epíscopo baptizáta et ad certámen muníta, ibídem, Vincéntii Præsidis jussu percússa gládio, martyrii corónam accépit. At Heliopolis, St. Eudocia, martyr in the persecution of Trajan. She was baptized by Bishop Theodotus, and being fortified for the combat, was put to the sword at the command of Vincent the governor, and thus received the crown of martyrdom. Eódem die sanctæ Antonínæ Mártyris, quæ in persecutióne Diocletiáni, cum Gentílium deos irrisísset, ídeo, post vários cruciátus, in vase quodam inclúsa, in palúdem urbis Ceæ demérsa est. On the same day, St. Antonina, martyr. For deriding the gods of the heathen, in the persecution of Diocletian, she was, after various torments, shut up in a cask and drowned in a marsh near the city of Cea. Romæ natális sancti Felícis Papæ Tértii, qui sancti Gregórii Magni átavus fuit; qui étiam (ut ipse Gregórius refert), sanctæ Tharsíllæ nepti appárens, illam ad cæléstia regna vocávit. At Rome, the birthday of Pope St. Felix III, ancestor of St. Gregory the Great, who relates of him that he appeared to St. Tharsilla, his niece, and called her to the kingdom of heaven. Apud civitátem Werdam sancti Suitbérti Epíscopi, qui, témpore sancti Sérgii Papæ Primi, apud Frísones, Bátavos et álios Germániæ pópulos Evangélium prædicávit. At Kaiserswerdt, Bishop St. Swidbert, who, in the time of Pope Sergius, preached the Gospel among the Frisians, Batavians, and other Germanic peoples. Andégavi, in Gállia, sancti Albíni, Epíscopi et Confessóris, viri præclaríssimæ virtútis et sanctitátis. At Angers in France, St. Albinus, bishop and confessor, a man of most eminent virtue and piety. Apud Cenómanos, in Gállia, sancti Siviárdi Abbátis. At Le Mans in France, St. Siviard, abbot. Perúsiæ Translátio sancti Herculáni, Epíscopi et Mártyris, qui jussu Tótilæ, Gothórum Regis, decollátus est. Ipsíus autem corpus ita cápiti unítum atque sanum, quadragésimo post abscissiónem die (ut scribit sanctus Gregórius Papa), repértum est, ac si nulla ferri incísio illud tetigísset. At Perugia, the transferral of the body of St. Herculanus, bishop and martyr, who was beheaded by order of Totila, king of the Goths. Forty days after the decapitation, Pope St. Gregory relates that the head had been rejoined to the body as if it had never been touched by the sword.

Et álibi aliórum plurimórum sanctórum Mártyrum et Confessórum, atque sanctárum Vírginum. And elsewhere in divers places, many other holy martyrs, confessors, and holy virgins. R. Deo grátias. R. Thanks be to God.
