Saint Klio was one of the forty virgins and ascetics who were sentenced to death along with their teacher Ammun because of their Christian faith. Ammun was arrested with his students by the pagan ruler of Edirne, Vavdos, who tortured them horrifically and referred them to the ruler of the region, Licinius. Saint Klio together with her teacher and the other ascetics confessed their faith in God, with the consequence that Licinius ordered their death.

Ammun and eight of his students were beheaded, ten were thrown into the fire, ten were killed with swords in the mouth and heart, six were forced to swallow incandescent marbles and the other six were stabbed. The memory of the forty virgins and Amun is honored by the Orthodox Christian Church on September 1 of each year.
