Alexandríæ sancti Gallicáni Mártyris, viri Consuláris, qui, sublimátus ínfulis triumphálibus et Constantíno Augústo carus, a sanctis Joánne et Paulo ad Christi fidem convérsus est; eáque suscépta, cum sancto Hilaríno secéssit ad Ostia Tiberína, atque ibi hospitalitáti et infirmórum servítio totum se dedit. Cujus rei fama in toto Orbe divulgáta, multi úndique illuc veniéntes vidébant virum ex Patrício et Cónsule laváre páuperum pedes, pónere mensam, aquam mánibus effúndere, languéntibus sollícite ministráre et cétera pietátis offícia exhibére. Ipse póstmodum, sub Juliána Apóstata, inde expúlsus, Alexandríam perréxit; ibíque, cum a Rauciáno Júdice sacrificáre cogerétur et contémneret, ideo, percússus gládio, Christi Martyr efféctus est. At Alexandria, St. Gallicanus, exconsul and martyr who had been honoured with a triumph, and was held in affection by the emperor Constantine. Converted by Saints John and Paul, he withdrew to Ostia with St. Hilarinus, and consecrated himself entirely to the duties of hospitality and to the service of the sick. The report of such an event spread throughout the whole world, and from all sides many people came to see a man who had been a senator and consul now washing the feet of the poor, preparing their table, serving them, carefully waiting on the infirm, and exercising other works of mercy. Driven from this place by Julian the Apostate, he repaired to Alexandria, where, for refusing to sacrifice to idols, at the command of the judge Raucian, he was put to the sword, and thus became a martyr of Christ.

Finally her teeth were broken out, her breasts and feet cut away, and she was condemned to capital punishment, going to her Spouse adorned with sufferings as with so many jewels.
