Sanctórum vero Cyríaci, Largi et Smarágdi festívitas sexto Idus Augústi recólitur, quo die a beáto Marcéllo Papa córpora eorúndem vigínti trium Mártyrum leváta sunt ac venerabíliter tumuláta. At Rome the martyrdom of the deacon St. Cyriacus, who, after a long imprisonment, had melted pitch poured over him, was stretched on the rack, had his limbs pulled with ropes, was beaten with clubs, and finally was beheaded by order of Maximian, together with Largus, Smaragdus, and twenty others. Their feast, however, is kept on the 8th of August, the day on which these twenty-three martyrs were exhumed by blessed Pope Marcellus and reverently entombed. Aquiléjæ natális beáti Hilárii Epíscopi, et Tatiáni Diáconi, qui, sub Numeriáno Imperatóre et Berónio Præside, post equúleum atque ália torménta, una cum Felíce, Largo et Dionysio, martyrium terminárunt.

In Lycaonia, the holy martyr Papas, who was scourged for the Christian faith, had his flesh torn with iron hooks, and was compelled to walk with shoes pierced with nails, and was finally bound to a barren tree. In leaving this world to go to God, he rendered this same tree fruitful. Anazárbi, in Cilícia, sancti Juliáni Mártyris, qui, sub Marciáno Præside, diutíssime cruciátus, demum, in sacco una cum serpéntibus inclúsus, in mare demérsus est.
