"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 Salerian Way, and buried alive there under a heap of earth and stones". This was in 283 A.D.

Mass: Intret.
