Santi CIPRIANO and GIUSTINA (? - September 26, 302/304) Christian martyrs. Born both pagans, traditionally the former practiced magic in the name of Mitra and Demetra, the second was born of a noble and wealthy family, and pronounced the vow of chastity by converting to Christianity. Aglaide, a young pagan who had asked her as a bride, refused her, hired the wizard to use any sorcery to induce her to accept it, but the young man with a breath of prayer and the imposition of the Cross removed all the daemons. Deeply disturbed by the power of the Christian faith, Cyprian himself converted with such profound devotion that he soon became bishop of Antioch, while Giustina was appointed a deaconess of a convent. During the persecution of Diocletian, they were arrested by Prefect Entolmio; after having suffered several suicides, they died for decapitation. Commemoration on September 26, the day of death (Dies Natalis, birth in the sky). Since the historical existence of the two characters is not documented, they do not appear in the last edition of the Roman Martiology of 2001. Colored engraving, Italy 1886
