The Holy Forty Martyrs martyred in Sebastia of Asia Minor. These Saints were select soldiers of Licinius. When Licinius began a persecution against the Christians, he demanded that his soldiers embrace the idols. However, they refused, as a result of which they were arrested by the prefect Agricola and suffered horrible tortures. Eventually, they were thrown into a frozen lake where they were martyred.

The year 438 AD Empress Pulcheria found the relics of the Saints hidden in the temple of Saint Thyrsus and built a temple in their memory. The Forty Martyrs who martyred in Sebastia are celebrated by the Orthodox Christian Church on March 9 of each year.
