Saints Eleutherius and Anthia (died 138 A.D.) are second century Christian martyrs. Anthia was the mother of Eleutherius, who was a Roman and was taught by Bishop Dynamius. He became a bishop himself at age twenty in Illyria, Dalmatia. He was arrested for converting a Roman official to Christianity and was clubbed to death, while his mother, Anthia, was beheaded.[1]
