At Nomento in the Sabine Hills, the birthday of the holy martyrs Primus and Felician, under the emperors Diocletian and Maximian.  These glorious martyrs lived long in the service of the Lord, and endured sometimes together, sometimes separately, various cruel torments.  They were finally beheaded by Promotus, governor of Nomento, and thus happily ended their trial.  Their bodies were afterwards translated to Rome and honorably buried in the Church of St. Stephen the Protomartyr on the Cælian Hill.
