His body was pierced through with arrows, and he was left for dead. Irene, the widow of St. Castulus, going to bury him, found him still alive and took him to her lodgings, where he recovered from his wounds, but refused to take flight. On the contrary, he deliberately took up his station one day on a staircase where the emperor was to pass, and there accosting him denounced the abominable cruelties perpetrated against the Christians. This freedom of language, coming from a person whom he supposed to be dead, for a moment kept Emperor speechless; but recovering from his surprise, he gave orders for him to be seized and beaten to death with cudgels, and his body thrown into the common sewer. A lady called Lucina, admonished by the Martyr in a vision, had his body secretly buried in the place called Ad Catacumbas, where now stands the Basilica
of St. Sebastian.
