Febronia of Nisibis, also known as Febronia of Sebapte, was a nun at Nisibis, Mesopotamia. She suffered persecution under Diocletian, who offered her freedom if she renounced her faith and married his nephew, Lysimachus, who had been leading to conversion to Christianity. Febronia refused and was tortured, suffered bodily mutalation and death. Lysimachus, witnessing her suffering, converted.
Febronia is one of the 140 Colonnade saints which adorn St. Peter's Square.
