St Achatius was born in Cappadocia and was a centurion in the Roman troops during the Emperors Diocletian and Maximian. He refused to sacrifice to the gods which led the commanding officer to accuse him of rejecting the pagan faith. This was a crime punishable by torture and torment. After the suffering he was then decapitated.
