SOLENNITY OF RELIGIOUS SANITES - THE SACRED FOUR MARTIRI CORONATES (? - November 8, 304 and 306). According to the Simproniano tradition, Claudio, Nicostrato and Castorio were four skilled marble workers who worked in Sirmio, Pannonia, in present-day Serbia; the Emperor Diocletian, very pleased with their works, commissioned that they carved an Esculapius affair, but they refused to sculpt a pagan simulacrum, and were therefore tortured and finally thrown into a closed river in plumbs; Simplicius, a colleague, and a correligionary, sought to recover the sorceries, and so suffered the same martyrdom. Two years later, at the Albano at Rome on the same date Severus (or Second), Severino, Carpoforo and Vittorino were four soldiers of the Diocletian escort, who suffered the martyrdom for refusing to sacrifice to Esculapio himself. The vicissitudes of these Christian martyrs mingle with one another, and are venerated together in the basilica that carries the title, and is decorated with frescoes of each other. The relics are kept in a group of four stone arches, kept in the basilica itself. The five cutter blades are considered patrons of masonry, stonecutters and building corporations. Commemoration on November 8, the day of death (Dies Natalis, birth in the sky). Colored Etching, Italy 1886
