Romæ sanctárum Basilíssæ et Anastásiæ, nobílium feminárum, quæ, cum essent Apostolórum discípulæ et constántes in fidei confessióne persísterent, sub Neróne Imperatóre, lingua pedibúsque præcísis, percússæ gládio, martyrii corónam adéptæ sunt. At Rome, the Saints Basilissa and Anastasia, noble women who were disciples of the apostles. Because they persevered courageously in the profession of their faith during the time of the Emperor Nero, they had their tongues and feet cut off, were put to the sword, and thus obtained the crown of martyrdom.

Eódem die sanctórum Mártyrum Marónis, Eutychétis et Victoríni; qui, primo cum beáta Flávia Domitílla apud ínsulam Póntiam in Christi confessióne éxsules, póstmodum, sub Príncipe Nerva, liberáti, tandem, cum plúrimos ad fidem convertíssent, in persecutióne Trajáni, a Valeriáno Júdice váriis pœnis jussi sunt intérfici. The same day, the holy martyrs Maro, Eutyches, and Victorinus, who, along with blessed Flavia Domitilla, had been banished to the island of Pontia for the confession of Christ. Being recalled in the reign of Nerva, and having converted many to the faith, they were put to death in different ways by the judge Valerian, during the persecution of Trajan.

In Pérside sanctórum Mártyrum Máximi et Olympíadis, qui, sub Décio Imperatóre, fústibus et plumbátis cæsi sunt; et ad últimum cápita eórum sunt fústibus tunsa, donec ambo emítterent spíritum. In Persia, in the reign of Emperor Decius, the holy martyrs Maximus and Olympias, who were beaten with rods and whips, and struck on their heads with clubs until they breathed no more.
