Romæ sanctæ Plautíllæ, féminæ Consuláris, quæ beatórum Mártyrum Flávii Cleméntis Cónsulis soror et Fláviæ Domitíllæ Vírginis mater éxstitit; atque, a sancto Petro Apóstolo baptizáta, ómnium virtútum laude refúlgens, quiévit in pace. At Rome, St. Plautilla, wife of a consul, sister of the consul Flavius Clemens, and mother of the holy virgin Flavia Domitilla, both martyrs.  She was baptized by the apostle St. Peter, and after giving an example of all the virtues, she rested in peace.
Item Romæ, via Salária, natális sanctæ Basíllæ Vírginis, quæ, cum esset ex régio génere, et illustríssimum sponsum habéret illúmque dimisísset, accusáta fuit ab eo quod esset Christiána, et mox decrétum est a Galliéno Augústo ut aut sponsum recíperet, aut gládio interíret; cumque ipsa Virgo, convénta de hoc, respondísset se Regem regum habére sponsum, gládio transverberáta est. Also at Rome, on the Salarian Way, the birthday of St. Basilla, virgin, who was of a royal family and betrothed to a nobleman.  When she refused to marry him, he accused her of being a Christian.  Emperor Gallienus gave orders that she should accept the person to whom she had been engaged, or die by the sword.  Being informed of this, and answering that she had for her spouse the King of kings, she was pierced with a sword.

At Nimes in France, St. Baudelius, martyr.  Being arrested, but refusing to sacrifice to idols, and remaining immovable in the faith of Christ, despite blows and tortures, he gained the palm of martyrdom by his praiseworthy death.
