Saint Astius (died 117 A.D.) is a second century Christian martyr venerated by the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches. He was the bishop of Dyrrhachium in what is now Albania. He was crucified by the Romans during the persecution of Christians under the Roman emperor Trajan. A group of other saints, Peregrinus, Gennanus, Lucian, Pompeius, Hesychius, Papius, and Saturninus, were killed because they sympathized with Astius. His feast day is July 7.[1]
