"At Rome," says the Roman Martyrology, "the triumph of Saint Chrysanthus and his wife, Saint Daria, Martyrs. After several torments, which they endured for Jesus Christ, under the Prefect, Celerinus, they were condemned, by the Emperor Numerian, to be thrown into a sandpit on the Salarian Way, and buried alive there under a heap of earth and stones".

They were Martyred in 283 A.D.
