Gold Plated Lithography with Saint Eutychia

The Holy Confessors, Agathon, Eutychia, Kasia and Philippa, were all minor children and lived during the reign of Emperor Diocletian. They belonged to the Christians of Thessaloniki and did not hesitate to confess their faith. They were arrested in 304 AD and were brought before the prefect to be tried on the charge of refusing to eat from the animals sacrificed to the idols. However, all four bravely confessed their faith in God despite the threats they received even for their own lives. Eventually, because they were still children, the prefect feared that if he killed them there would be reactions and so they were sentenced to confinement in the prison. Their strength of faith and courage was an example to be imitated by the people of Thessaloniki.
