In Africa, the holy martyrs Victorian, proconsul of Carthage, and two brothers from Aquaregia. Also two merchants, both named Frementius, who (as Bishop Victor Africanus relates) were subjected to the most atrocious torments for their courageous confession of the Catholic faith, and who were gloriously crowned martyrs under the Arian king Hunneric, during the persecution of the Vandals.

Barcinóne, in Hispánia, sancti Joséphi Oriol Presbyteri, Ecclésiæ sanctæ Maríæ Regum Beneficiárii, omnígena virtúte ac præsértim córporis afflictatióne, paupertátis cultu atque in egénos et infírmos caritáte célebris; quem, in vita et post mortem miráculis gloriósum, Pius Papa Décimus in Sanctórum númerum recénsuit. At Barcelona in Spain, the priest St. Joseph Oriol, pastor of the church of St. Mary of the Kings, famous for every virtue, especially mortification of the body, his rule of poverty, and his love towards the poor and the sick.

In Campánia sancti Benedícti Mónachi, qui, a Gothis in ardénti clíbano inclúsus, sequénti die invéntus est illæsus. In Campania, St. Benedict, monk, who was shut up in a burning furnace by the Goths, but who was found uninjured the next day.
