Virgin Martyr of the Christian Church, whose memory is commemorated on January 21. This day is celebrated by those who bear the name Agni.

Agia Agni was born in Salerno and came from an aristocratic family. She gathered her friends in her house and urged them to worship Christ as the only God. The Roman authorities arrested her as a sacrilege and imprisoned her for punishment in a brothel. The men, however, who tried to touch her, fell asleep and looked like the dead. She was then taken to the place of martyrdom in Rome and burned naked, probably during the reign of Diocletian (284-305). On her tomb, Constantine the Great built a small church.
