The Holy Martyrs Justin, Chariton, Euelepistus, Hierax, Peon, Liverianus and Justus
These all suffered in Rome in the time of Marcus Aurelius and the Eparch Rusticus. When Rusticus asked: `Do you think that, if you die for Christ, you will receive a reward in heaven?', Justin replied: `We do not think it; we know!' They were all then beheaded, in 163, and went to the Kingdom of Christ our God.
