In the year 344, Daniel a priest and Verda a virgin were apprehended in the province of the Razicheans, in Persia, by an order of the governor and put to all manner of torments for three months, almost without intermission. Among other tortures, their feet being bored through, were put into frozen water for five days. The governor, seeing it impossible to overcome their constancy condemned them to lose their heads.
