Martyrs Leonidas, Chariessa, Nika, Galina, Callista (Calisa), Nunechia, Basilissa, Theodora, and Irene, of Corinth
Commemorated on April 16
The Holy Martyr Leonidas and the Holy Martyrs Charissa, Nike, Galina, Kalisa (Kalida), Nunekhia, Basilissa, and Theodora suffered at Corinth in the year 258. They threw them into the sea, but they did not drown. Instead, they walked upon the water as if on dry land, singing spiritual hymns. The torturers overtook them in a ship, tied stones around their necks and drowned them.
