Romæ sanctórum Mártyrum Anastásiæ senióris Vírginis, et Cyrílli. Ipsa Virgo, in persecutióne Valeriáni, sub Probo Præfécto, vínculis constrícta, cólaphis cæsa, igne et verbéribus est cruciáta, et, cum in confessióne Christi permanéret immóbilis, tandem, abscíssis mamíllis, evúlsis únguibus, déntibus comminútis, mánibus pedibúsque præcísis, truncáta cápite, tot passiónum ornáta monílibus migrávit ad Sponsum; Cyríllus autem, ei peténti aquam propínans, martyrium pro mercéde accépit.
At Rome, the holy martyrs Cyril and Anastasia the Elder, virgin. In the persecution of Valerian, under the prefect Probus, Anastasia was bound with chains, buffeted, subjected to fire and scourging, and, as she remained immovable in the confession of Christ, her breasts were cut away, her nails plucked out, her teeth broken, and her hands, feet, and head severed from her body. Adorned with her sufferings as with so many jewels, she went to her Spouse. At her request, Cyril gave her some water to drink, and for his reward became a martyr.
