Abacuc (Or Abachum)

a martyr commemorated by the Western Church Jan. 19 (or 20), together with Maris (or Mauri), his father; Martha, his mother; and Audifax, his brother. They are said to have come from the confines of Persia, in the time of Claudius II, to Rome, where, after rendering many services to the faithful, they were put to death under Aurelian or Diocletian, about A.D. 270. Their bodies, buried at some distance from Rome, were brought to that city about 820 by pope Pascal I and interred in the Church of St. Adrian, where they were found in 1590 at a place now called Santa Ninfa.
