The holy and glorious Virgin-martyr Piama of Egypt (also Piamun or Piamon) lived during the fourth century. Her feast day is celebrated on March 3.

From the Prologue of Ohrid:

For the sake of Christ she refused to marry, and gave herself to asceticism in her mother's house. She took only a little food every other day, and spent her time in prayer and meditation, being gifted with insight. She departed this life peacefully, commending her soul to the Lord, in about the year 377. [1]
